Story starts out in your average suburban home, Mum, Dad, Big brother, little brother and little bossy sister. Little brothers dreams of the wild horses every night and little sister worries about this. They have a friend at school they call 'Tex' who says he is a cowboy from Texas. A special bond is formed between the three little friends when it is discovered that Tex really lives in a trailer and is not from Texas, he is worried that his new friends will desert him but this does not happen only brings them closer together.
They concoct a scheme to run away to Nevada (by stowing away in big brothers car) to catch a mustang each and bring them home and keep them in the garage!
Many adventures are had along the way when the trio runs into a team of horse rustlers who try to steal 'General' a famous show horse that the kids have found and 'tamed' all by themselves, unaware that he is not a mustang. They end up being held hostage by the rustlers.
Lots of drama and excitement when the trio are pursued individually by the bad guys and the many clever tricks used by the kids to outsmart their dumb captors!
Happy ending for all when the crooks are caught, General is returned to his rightful owner and love blossoms for big brother and Generals owners daughter.
A really enjoyable 'feel good' movie with drama, excitement a little romance and of course, horses galore! I thoroughly recommend this movie to young and not so young, very entertaining.
