I really did enjoy the movie. It isn't as cheesy as most horse movies and shows some very good riding. However, the horse is an arabian and not a mustang. Couldn't they have gotten a quarter horse or something stockier to play the horse? It is very obvious the horse isn't a mustang. And I wish the movie wasn't called Country Pride. Its about English riding, which I respect and do ride, but doesn't strike me as "country pride"....sorry just doesn't. The acting is good and the movie is enjoyable, very good choice for children. I think its one of the best horse movies, but if you know stuff about horses it may be distracting.
