Heart warming "horse" picture
2 March 2004 | by bobbyh214See all my reviews

A great family movie. Just enjoyed this picture so much. Ari Meyers is wonderful as the spoiled kid that finally comes around and Donovan Leitch is an eyeful for the young ladies. Based on a story by 50s legend Tab Hunter (who does a small part in the pic)this movie will have you tearing and cheering. If you love horses you will flip over his great movie. Just wish that Tab Hunter would have stayed in front of the camera more instead of behind it. Ed Bagley, Jr., and Mini Rogers are perfect for their roles as Dad and Vet. Photography is great too, wonderful scenes of the farm and horses. You'll forget all about elections, wars and such when you settle back and watch this truly great movie.
