Oh, yes. Required viewing for every young kid back in the day. She was always the sweet bouncy little Mouseketeer (liked Darlene better, BTW). Saw The Horsemasters at a later date. Also hate to admit watching all those Annette and Frankie Avalon (swoon) movies.
Oh yes. It was one of my favorites because it was one of the few "horsey" stories that wasn't "cowboys". I remember someone got demerits because they didn't clean under the horse's tail well enough (although that may have been the book).

I've seen it, too, though not in original release/showing. Watchable but not much like the book.
Yep. I liked both as separate entities.
We watched it during a boot cleaning party in college. The next day one of the team captains told me "throw your heart over the fence and follow it!" She forgot to tell me to make sure the horse did, too, and I went over without him.... That incident plus the fact I was named after her combined to mean my team name was Dinah from that day forward.
My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

Yeah, book was MUCH better. Made me want to sign up for Porlock Vale Riding School and get my BHS certificate - which ended up being financiall unfeasible. I had a horse like Cornish Pasty - a miserable sod on the flat, but jump anything, especially cross-country!
