Mel Ferrer managed to get this odd film a wide US release although the story could not have been less appropriate for that. I suspect an English version of this must exist somewhere since wide releases were rarely subtitled in the sixties unless they were art-house films. Marisol and her little brother are rag merchants in rural Spain along with their tired old mascot, the title's horse, Cabriola. Their dreary world is awoken by the pageantry of a local festival that involves bullfighting on horseback. This sport seems to contain posing rather than any actual fighting, with the horse getting the brunt of the danger. Marisol impersonates a boy in order to penetrate the sport's inner circle leading to her falling in love with the local champion, also her trainer. Marisol is an unconvincing male (think Barbra Streisand in YENTL) but all this leads to some odd melodramatics forcing her to break into song. ("Ya No Me Importas Nada"). This film is well known in Eastern Europe and Russia.
