Good, clean kids movie
Verified purchase
Good, clean kids movie. Hard to find sweet, adventurous movies these days like this one. There are thieves, tying "prisoners" up, but no guns and there is nothing too scary for 7 yrs and up. The kids outsmart the thieves, like in Home Alone, and nobody is hurt. Good lesson about not lying and being yourself.

Crazy Over Horse Crazy
Verified purchase
I purchased this movie for my grandsons several years ago in a VHS version, a movie for the young cowboy filled with adventure, bad guys and not to forget a young team of heroes and an amazing horse. The movie was watched so many times the "tape broke". the boys asked me over and over again if I had found a replacement but another copy was impossible to find. Just this last Holiday Season I was able to find it on Amazon in a DVD version, I thought after all this time the boys may have gotten to old to enjoy the movie...smiles from ear to ear on my youngest grandson's face once the package was opened -he immediately played it three times from beginning to end! Thanks for offering an impossible find!

fun and adorable
Verified purchase
This movie was both fun and adorable at the same time. The child actors gave strong performances and portrayed distinctive and engaging characters. The adult actors provided strong support throughout the entire movie. The scenery was fantastic and there was plenty of light humor throughout this movie. The plot wasn't quite believeable, but it wasn't so far-fetched that it wasn't enjoyable. An eight-year-old boy who dreams of owning his own horse seizes an opportunity to sneak a ride to Nevada with his older brother (who is going to visit his girl friend who he winds up dropping) in order to capture wild mustangs. Two other kids wind up sneaking along. Add a couple of horse theives into the mix and a pretty young lady to attract the interest of the older brother and things get interesting. Who would enjoy watching this movie? One audience is likely to be children under the age of ten. The pacing, humor, and action in the movie would attract this audience. The other main audience that would apprectiate this movie is adults who get a kick out of silly kid movies. This movie does a good job of presenting a captivating story without getting preachy or sappy in any way. There were a couple of moral lessons thrown in along the way, but they fit seemlessly into the plot and don't seem forced in any way. There is also a strong and appealling sub-plot in this movie involving a budding romantic relationship between two people in their early twenties which integrates quite naturally with the main plot.

If I wasn't before, I am HORSE CRAZY now
Verified purchase
My two grandchildren, ages 5 and 3, were spending the summer with me in Texas. While here, they took horseback riding lessons every week. They both became horse crazy. What a surprise. When I saw this DVD, I ordered it. We all watched it again and again. I am over 50, and I got as big a kick out of it as did my grandchildren. The imagination and plotting and actions of the kids in the movie are so refreshing and enjoyable. I laughed out loud several times. This is a great movie for all ages, but especially for children who can benefit from wholesome entertainment not full of bad imitative behavior. Do you know anyone who can benefit? If you do, make a gift to them of this movie and watch it with them and enjoy!

Horse Crazy by a horse crazy person!
Verified purchase
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.

Solid Family Entertainment

This is a very entertaining movie, and not irritating (like many kids' movies can be) when your kids want to watch it several times in a row. Absolutely beautiful footage of the desert, gorgeous horse, and really cute kids. Three kids stow away in big brother's car, with the plan to capture three wild mustangs in the Nevada desert and "ride them home for supper". Lots of exciting scenes, the kids get to be the heroes, and it isn't too scary for the little ones. Our teenaged neighbors enjoy the movie, just as much as my not-yet-teens do.

I suspect that the "professional movie reviewer" who gave this movie a bad rating wasn't really watching the movie, since she got the entire plot wrong. Definitely worth the money!

We are crazy about Horse Crazy!
Verified purchase
I purchased this DVD for myself and my two year old son who are both HORSE CRAZY. This movie is so cute! My son wants to watch this movie every day over and over. We have it in our car when we go on road trips. When I need him to go to sleep, I have to shut the movie off otherwise he fights sleep just to watch it. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves horses or has a horse crazy kid. Our son now wears a cowboy hat and has a little rope that he plays with all the time just since he started watching this movie! So worth the money!!!!!!!
