This is an engaging, emotionally exciting movie for horse lovers, and a wonderful family adventure film.
24 February 2005 | by (Cullman, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I wrote a comment about this movie before that was accepted and posted, but that was several months ago. I've been a horse lover my entire life of almost 50 years. This movie is so wonderful I've been trying to purchase a copy for myself since it was first broadcast on television,with no luck. Now that I run a small horse farm, teaching riding lessons and training English and Western pleasure horses, I appreciate the film even more.

The story of Flash is sad and suspenseful but very inspirational. It is based on a true story. The horse information is genuine, believable, and ultimately positive. The acting is more than competent, and the content is appropriate for all ages. In addition, the events that unfold are not as far-fetched as some who have commented believe they are. In fact, the plot is very believable, especially in these times of high unemployment and inadequate health care services. More and more families are finding themselves in desperate situations. Even so, many of these families try hard to find ways for their children to fulfill their dreams (I was such a single parent for many years).

Finally, it is possible to find unwanted horses that have valuable qualities,such as the horse in the film. Horse lovers like myself, who are not blessed to be wealthy, become experts at hunting out these bargain treasures and enjoy wonderful relationships with these amazing animals.

I hope to generate more interest in this film so that it will become commercially available once more. I hope more people will request it through online movie sale websites.
