Storyline

A little girl living on an isolated ranch claims to have formed a bond of friendship with a pure white, "wild" stallion. The horse is well known in the area, almost legendary, and supposedly vicious. Is she just making it up, or is she telling the truth? If it's real, isn't it dangerous for her with a "killer" horse? Or is the horse as vicious as he's been portrayed? Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Favorite movie, introduced me to a love of horses
2 June 2005 | by team29See all my reviews

It is very heartwarming to see so many others remembering and looking for this movie. I have searched over the years in discount video bins hoping I would come across it. I, too, have been haunted by the theme song, not really remembering it, but it is there. I would also like to introduce my children to this movie. If I remember correctly, the scenery was magnificent and just the sight of Snowfire running through the canyons was quite beautiful. Seeing it as a young girl, I could relate to how deeply Molly cared about Snowfire's well being. If there is any way to prompt a release of this movie, I would gladly pore-order to get the attention needed.
