Working in a Texas stockyard, breaking horses, Charlie's doing the best she can to support herself and her two brothers. But when she loses her job, she gets the idea to take her best bronco, Sylvester, and turn him into a lucrative profit by training him for three-day eventing. But since she knows little of dressage and show-jumping, it's going to take the help of her old boss, an ex-cavalryman, to get ready for competition.Written by
The horse Sylvester for competition was officially called "Sylvester Metz" named after previous owner Sue Sally Hale's stepfather Sylvester Metz (a.ka. Richard Talmadge) an iconic Hollywood stuntman. See more »

A horse has got less IQ than a hog, he's less efficient than a bicycle and a lot more expensive than a floozy. Me, I love a mule.

An all over feel good, get off your butt and ride your horse movie.
I watched this movie on TV and fell in love with it then. About five years later I bought it and watched it at least 6 more times. The acting must of been good because as a horse rider myself, I could see and understand the feelings that Charlie was going through herself. The only thing that made me rewind the movie back was the part where she caught Sylvester, calmed him down, and after it bit her in the arm you can notice the poor use of cartoon-like footage of the horse running away. Other than that I will always find this movie in my heart every time I think about giving up or when I need some encouragement to ride horses.
