I want this movie!
8 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this way back in my past and it was an awesome movie. I love it and i want to purchase it, sadly it is almost impossible to find at a reasonable price.

It is sad, touching, adventurous, i absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a good family movie. :) Why on earth is it so darn hard to find though? I searched online and its for sale VHS, new, for like 50$?

I was hoping more to get a DVD version, but thats closer to impossible to find compared to the other.

This is also a good horse lovers film. The movie is about a horse and a boy and it comes with many good family elements as well. A beautifully created film that i hope to see released again in the future.
