A young girl's unwavering faith in a battered horse takes them both to the prestige and honor of national competition in this touching, heroic drama. Melissa Gilbert makes a spirited film debut as Charlie Railsberg, a 16-year-old wrangler who recognizes the noble spirit of a wild horse she christens "Sylvester." Oscar(r) nominee Richard Farnsworth portrays John Foster, a hard-headed stockyard boss who takes Charlie and her two orphaned brothers into his home. Foster is convinced that Sylvester isworthless, but is proven wrong when Sylvester and Charlie become the odds-on favorite at the National Equestrian Trails. Before it's all over, Charlie falls in love and is faced with the opportunity-and decision-of a lifetime.
What a great movie! Highly recommend to any three day eventers out therePublished 14 days ago by SARA S.
A true classic for equestrians. Yes, some parts are cheesy or a little far-fetched, but it is pretty good overall for a major horse movie.Published 1 month ago by DLM

Sister was trying to transfer some old VHS tapes to disc and this one movie wouldn't work anymore. Nice surprise for her to add to her collection.Published 2 months ago by busdad
My children and I began watching this movie when they were young and into Three Day Eventing. It might be the only classic movie in which the sport of Eventing takes center stage. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Saralinda
