I'm not a horse enthusiast, nor was i expecting a documentary, but this was quite interesting anyway. Its interview style is very sparse on details that someone who raises or trains horses would be interested in; I suppose that makes it more relatable for the rest of us. You can't get more authentic than the guy with the missing teeth who admits at the very end of the film that he does have false teeth but they're in a jar in his kitchen.

An excellent documentary about a woman with a dream and getting a town together to support the dream. I understood about 95% of the dialogue because of the occasional colloquial Welsh phrases. Well worth watching if you love horses.

Rather an enjoyable movie full of undisguised social commentary.

A great story...similar in some ways to Seabiscuit (another good biopic about a race horse, the book is even better).

This flick is a touching case study in how honest enthusiasm and scrappy determination (the horse - Dream Alliance and idea instigator - Jan) infects and draws others into a thrilling and rejuvenating ride...for the horse owners group, their entire working-class village and even the posh horse trainer.

Fabulous and heartwarming. The way we should treat our animals! I really thought I'd be bored but I found myself emotional (happy tears) several times throughout. Just loved it.

Such a great commentary on working-class values overcoming upper-class snobbery--not to mention the pact between humans and animals. Terribly heartwarming.

A great true story, well presented by the people who were actually involved with this delightful horse.
