I do enjoy National Velvet, it was a great movie and proved to me when I was young, that I can do anything I want.
There is also a follow up called International Velvet about Velvets niece who goes to the Olympics. I love that movie too! That one was released 1978, so kinda old too :) but in colour! Hehe
International Velvet is one of my upmost favorite movies of all time! I watched that film over and over and over - cept the part where one of her teammates horses has to be euthanized on the flight to the U.S.A for the Olympics. That part devistates me........
But I loved it because it showed me that if I worked hard enough, I could make it to levels in the Eventing world.
I also love "The Little Horse That Could" It is about a Conemara Stallion who proved himself in the Combined Training World.
And SYLVESTER - another fabulous Eventing Movie!
