Running Free [DVD] [2000]

Chase Moore and Arie Verveen are the human stars of this period drama about the extraordinary life and times of a horse.

When war breaks out, the stable is abandoned and the pony escapes into a nearby desert, where an Oryx antelope and a native girl become his companions and teach him how to survive on his own.
