Me and horses never really clicked.
Which bummed me out as a kid, because – according to all the teen books I was reading at the time – I was supposed to love horses and rush off after school to comb their manes, and feed them apples and sugar cubes, and stuff.
My girls, however, are proper outdoorsy, animal-loving types. Which is one of the reasons why they LOVED the new movie: BARBIE AND HER SISTERS IN: A PONY TALE.
In it, Barbie travels with her siblings to the Swiss Alps, where she rediscovers a breed of pony long thought to be extinct, AND helps to save her Aunt’s riding school. Not bad for a few days work.
My girls have easily watched this five times already, and each time they’re completely transfixed by the equine adventures, until the end credits roll.
