Walt Disney started by making movies in which animated drawings played the parts of people or animals who stood for people. Later he turned to making movies in which people or animals play the parts of animated drawings.
I have always loved this movie. I think it is because it brings back a lot of memories for me. I got my first horse, a dapple gray thoroughbred mare, for jumping when I was ten. We won many jumping championships. Now she has been retired. I still jump with one of my other horses but it is just not quite the same. I will always remember what it was like to jump her. Watching this movie brings back those wonderful memories.
I saw this movie in 1967 at a movie theatre in Chicago. Loved it as a child and enjoyed it all over again but this time from an adult perspective. Filled with some great actors that make this movie generational. My sixteen year old son also enjoyed watching for the 1st time. If you enjoy older movies without all the violence and profanity than this is one you can enjoy with the whole family.
