According to the progressing seasons throughout the movie, the two gray colts attacked by the cougar in the beginning of the movie do not age as they should have done. This is evident as Spirit and Rain return to the herd together, and are greeted by the same two gray colts who remain weanling's as opposed to yearlings.

Errors in geography

Factual errors 

The Lakota camp had a pen for their horses. Lakota would not have had pens, their horses would've run in a herd that was attended to by the teens of the tribe.

When a young Spirit and the other colts are playing in the water, before being approached by the herd of bison, Spirit is shown drinking water by lapping at it with his tongue, as would a dog. Horses do not drink in this fashion, rather they submerge their mouths and suck at the water.

When Spirit first enters the fort, there is a group of soldiers riding their horses in unison. Spirit neighs at them, and one brown horse stops moving and neighs back. The next line of horses behind the brown horse are still walking, but don't move forward.
