This very charming older children's serial from Germany, and quite skilfully dubbed into English, has stayed in my affectionate memory for almost 40 years. If you love "Little House On The Prairie" you will most likely feel a similar reverence to this. Both contain all the best aspects of the adult world as seen with a morally good mind. At the time, few people had travelled to foreign lands and so the spell was set upon a strange world. The scenery, though in black and white, was so fresh, and now would still fascinate because of the unspoilt quality. All the main cast were readily welcomed, and Helga Anders, of course, who spends an adventurous holiday with her uncle on a famous horse breeding farm, immediately became a most lovable heroine. During the short series one is captivated by her character to become very much more interested in horses than otherwise. Although only 18 at the time, her acting was remarkable. Alas, it is extremely sad that she died in 1986 from a heart attack aged only 38. Such a unique loss.
