(5 out of 5 stars)

"Previously released as the "Christmas Stallion",Gwen Davies(Sian MacLean),a 16 year old orphan,has lived a lifetime on her Grandfather's farm in Wales.Her love for him and the magnificent horses they raise is her entire life.She is devastated by her Grandfather's death-to lose him and possibly sell the farm.Under her Grandfather's Will her Uncle Alan(Daniel J. Travanti) from America who has been away for 20 years assumes responsibility.It's clear to Gwen that Alan will sell the Farm to Christopher Howard,a greedy property developer who will go to extreme lengths to buy it.She takes refuge in her work with her Magnificent Stallion that was her Grandfather's future hopes and the sole love in young Gwen's life.Will Gwen be able to keep the Farm and the Horses?Alan's decisision is not only crucial for Gwen but would also help him come to terms with his tragic past which makes this a Wonderful Christmas Story of Love and Hope!!"
For Horse Lovers and Welsh-philes (Is that a word?)

"Predictable story enlivened by moody Welsh scenery, depictions of village life at Christmastime, and appealing cast. Horse lovers may wish the equine players figured more prominently in the story, and in less pedestrian ways, but still a nice addition to the video library."
Offbeat horse flick
Staci L. Wilson | USA | 12/29/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"An orphaned 16-year-old Welsh girl, Gwen (Sian MacLean) again has to deal with the loss that death brings when her grandfather passes away after being thrown in a riding accident. She's left to handle the family farm and all the horses on it until her uncle (Daniel J. Travanti) enters the picture, wanting to sell the property to a greedy land developer. One possible way to keep the farm is for Gwen to enter her beloved black stallion Mabon (named for a Pagan holiday) in the Christmas Costume Race. The climatic scene showing Gwen as an angel riding against Father Christmas and an elf, among others, is certainly one of the more unique racing scenes in the movies - think of it as the Doo-Dah Parade on horseback.
