Did You Know?

Goofs

It is obvious they use several different horses as Rusty. In most scenes Patrick is riding a horse with 3 stockings and 1 left back fetlock (common horse markings) and in other scenes (such as the one where he is showing his family his jumping) he is riding a bay, and then switches to a horse with two socks.

I was on the set - even an extra - no I did not get paid - but the story is good and the actors are great. It's a movie folks. All the people behind the scenes worked hard, as well as all of the actors. And yes, Rusty is Rusty in all of the scenes. Contact Zion Farms if you do not believe me. And yes, the actors rode the horses as well. I heard that the main actors cowboy'ed the horses better than those of us who never rode horses before. It's a feel good movie - don't dissect it. Enjoy it. Three Billy's - how can you go wrong - sorry that Billy Preston could only be there for a short bit - but he wasn't feeling well.
