i really wanted to like this movie
16 February 2003 | by (Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

I am actually a fan of some of the stars of this movie...I love both the actors from "the nanny" and had seen the main character "Sunny" of this movie in "A Little Princess." I guess if you don't technically get into the horse issues or the riding issues, it is a cute movie it was acted pretty well for a "B" movie. I did have two problems with it though:

Why do they insist on using adult riders? I think it would have been just as happy to see trained kids doing the riding so it at least looked better. I don't need to see world record breaking speed or technique, they are supposed to be little girls riding, so why not let little girls do the riding? Girl barrel racers would have been cute to see.

I know that in cases like these it is impossible not to use more than one horse, but I don't understand why they would use an <obviously> male horse for a great deal of the riding and racing when it is supposed to be a mare? I do have contact with horses, and can tell when they used many many horses for Ginger, but you'd think they could at least use a mare! :)
