Equitainment's Comments

I'm so thrilled have finally found a supplier where I can get this fabo family movie. I haven't seen this one since I was a child myself, and was so thrilled have finally tracked it down.

This one is from the era of classic Disney from the 1950's and 60's. Every Saturday night we all gathered around the TV to watch the weekly Disney movie and, although a lot of them were often repeated, I never got tired of watching them over and over.

Dean Jones stars as the father of a shy young girl desperate for a horse of her own (instant empathy ... weren't we all!). He made so many brilliant family movies with Disney like The Love Bug (Herbie) movies, The Ugly Daschund, The Million Dollar Duck, The Shaggy DA, Beethoven; the list goes on and on. It also co-stars a teenage Kurt Russell in one of his earliest movie roles ever. Glad to see he chose the right one and decided horse movies would, quite rightly, launch his career.

They've made a really good effort at matching the different horses in this one too. Of course you can see the difference, especially by the tail or lack thereof in different shots, but all in all it's a pretty good effort. One thing that is VERY far fetched is how clean and tidy they all are. Fashion straight out of Vogue magazine, clean jods even after competing and not a hair out of place. I don't think so, Tim! Very true to life was however, the mad panic to make it to the class at the first show. Now that, we can all relate to.

All-in-all this is a beauty. Dated yes, but still immensely enjoyable for the whole family.

Product Overview

This fast-paced, rollicking Disney adventure combines fatherly love and corporate survival with exciting horseplay and budding romance.

The high-jinks begin when harassed New York advertising executive Fred Bolton (Dean Jones) acquires a horse for his painfully shy daughter as part of a hurriedly conceived promotional campaign.

With help from an attractive riding instructor (Diane Baker) and his daughter's would-be boyfriend (Kurt Russell), Fred hopes the horse will bring his client fame, save his own job, and just maybe finance his daughter's expensive equestrian habit!

A must-see for every Disney fan and lover of good wholesome old-fashioned fun.
