When Eddie finds himself at a horse farm as part of a prison work detail, he thinks it will be an easy way out. He soon finds, however, that it is much more difficult than he ever could have imagined.
When a horse named Big Spender arrives at the farm, Eddie's life takes a dramatic turn.
Big Spender was once a world-class racehorse, but after he stopped
winning, his abusive owner left him for dead. Near starvation, Big Spender has all but lost the will to live, and it is up to Eddie to nurse the horse back to health and help transform him back into a champion.
Based on a true story, BIG SPENDER is about the unlikeliest of friendships between a man and a horse and their attempt to regain what they have lost.

The movie is sentimental (which I don't necessarily consider a fault), and a little far-fetched in that winning one horse show would not in reality save anyone from financial ruin. Serious horse-showing (where the big money is) is extremely expensive and time-consuming.
That said, I still highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves horses. I volunteer at a horse retirement farm, so I can relate to a lot of the things in this movie. I own a copy of this movie on VHS, and am going to order it on DVD. I've watched it several times (and will watch it again, I know) and I always enjoy it.

a few minutes. I ended up watching the whole movie. I found it refreshing and uplifting without being sappy
or unrealistic in scope.
A great bond between man and beast;A great-looking man and a great-looking beast; If you're into these kinds of movies,it's a must see.
