These were enjoyable films but the dialogue was very disjointed and artificial at times. The films seemed to be rather dated which is only natural as they were done many years ago. Despite this they were enjoyable but I couldn't rate higher because of the dialogue and the long unnatural pauses occurring.

HORSE TAILS COLLECTION 16 Dec. 2011
By bandit06 - Published on Amazon.com

Had never seen the movie of Misty. These are all good clean stories and enjoyable. But I would recommend them more for younger pre-teen or children. Some really good lessons to learn from these movies. Don't get that anymore in movies or TV. If you love animals, especially horses, ponies you will enjoy watching these movies. Worth watching.

Horse Tales Collection 15 Dec. 2012
By scott - Published on Amazon.com
Misty is the best movie of the four. It stands alone. Wind Dancer is pitiful, not worth your time. Wildfire is full of bad acting and a poor story. Mary White has fairly good acting, scenes and story with a sad ending. Find Misty by itself.

not as good as I expected 26 May 2012
By leftyjewel - Published on Amazon.com

I have seen the movie Misty and that is the reason I wanted this set and it is as good as I remembered. I have watched two of the other movies and they were not good at all. They are low budget movies that fail to keep my interest and are not what I expected. Mary Smith was hardly about horses at all so that was disappointing. Having said that, I guess I can't complain too much if I get one good movie out of the deal for six bucks.

Four nags. 11 Dec. 2012
By Schubertfan - Published on Amazon.com

"Mary White" is about a teenaged girl growing up in the midwest at the turn of the last century. The film recounts her enthusiasm for progressive social causes. There is a scene where she and a friend ride horses and talk about progresive social causes. And the title character is killed while riding a horse, in a slow-motion shot with repeats, so the audience is in no doubt that this is an accident and not a high-risk attempt at tree pruning. If this is a "horse lover's movie" then so is "Birth of a Nation," which is not about progressive causes but has as much interest in horses as this film.

Now the reason this collection can get at least one star is "Wildfire: Arabian Heart." If you like laughing at bad movies, WAH is a treat. Production values are delightfully low, from the one-mike sound to choppy film editing. The main character is forced to spend a summer with a relative "in the country." She's dared to ride an Arabian horse in a race at the county fair. So far the film is entirely believable: We all know Arabian horse racing is a traditions at American county fairs -- just watch Hidalgo, which was filmed on location at a county fair. Unfortunately, the "county fair" turns out to be an amusement park with hay bales occasionally visible in some shots.

SPOILER BELOW, BUT YOU'll THANK ME --

Anyhow, a teenaged boy who works on the farm where this horse lives teaches her to ride. These are some of the most hilarious sequences -- the horse is a swaybacked, aged animal and the main character learns to ride by sitting on the horse, walking around a paddock, with the young boy holding the reins. That's it, round and round in a 20-foot circle with dialogue about how she's learning to ride and the horse is teaching her about life. Apparently those are the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor, although in the scenes they kept the horse is certainly teaching her about show business.

The horse isn't believable as a horse, let alone a race horse. The producers, who obviously couldn't afford any more horses, have a problem delivering on the promised, Ben-Hur climax of the film. Not to worry, however, because the poor horse dies the night before the big race. Now maybe this horse really died, maybe his agent told him the film was for distribution. I doubt it, however, as we never see a dead horse. The ending is so cheesey they couldn't even find a prop horse head and throw a blanket over it for the death scene a la Godfather. They just do closeups of the main characters standing around in the stall, reminiscing about the mystical power of the horse to change lives. From this bizarre serial eulogizing we gather that the horse knew he was ill but wouldn't let on there was something wrong, probably because they'd bring in a vet and wait until he was better before resuming shooting.

The film ends with everyone leaning on a fence and watching this horse's offspring, which are fine horses, gamboling and trotting around in a field. Those are the horses they couldn't afford for this movie. Unfortunately they managed to finish the dialogue before the real horse-owner called the police and had the actors and crew arrested for trespassing. This is the kind of movie that shows you how hard it is to make even a mediocre film.

I watched about half an hour of "Wind Dancer" which has the same production values as "Wildfire." There's a lot of talking about divorce, and how the girl's father needs to accept the advances of a neighbor lady. "Men have needs" -- they actually say that in the film -- and so I hurriedly ripped the DVD out before we ended up learning more on that subject, say, from scenes at a prison rodeo.

When I watched "Misty," which is a Disney production, the grainy film transfer and muffled sound was too much. This entire collection of garbage went where it belongs, in the trash. Don't waste your money gambling that this is a decent collection of family-friendly horse films.
