(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am a fan of the Black Stallion movies and Mickey Rooney. However, this is NOT a movie that I would recommend.

The plot was ok but left open enormous gaps in its logic and an unfinished ending; for instance, the lead female is going blind but somehow she wins the nationals in show jumping when she would have needed to have a physical exam to compete in it.

The actors appear to be Canadian although California competitors will recognize one arena at the LA Equestrian Center in every horse show featured in the movie (supposedly in different areas). The settings were not varied enough nor were the horses consistent. In some scenes the lead horse is grayish with a chewed off tail and then in others he is white with a long flowing tail.

Overall the acting was that of a "B Movie," too stilted to be believable with odd cinematography that tried too hard to make up for it. I am sorry for Mickey Rooney to have this on his resume; he is a much better actor than what came out in this film.

For people wanting a good family horse movie I would recommend Disney's "Miracle of the White Stallions" or Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment's "Sylvester" instead of this film."

"I had purchased this movie for pre-teens and they were quite bored with the stilted acting and with the obvious "horse switching" from scene to scene. Overall an okay movie for the 10 and under crowd."
