DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free is an animated series based on the 2002 Oscar nominated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and is now streaming on Netflix. It’s about a city-turned-country girl named Lucky who meets a wild mustang named Spirit and feels an instant connection to the untamable horse. A courageous and natural-born leader, Lucky navigates this new world with her two new best friends, Pru and Abigail by her side. The trio embark on thrilling adventures, find genuine friendship, and discover what it means to be free!
To help celebrate the release, we were invited to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center to learn about the center’s facilities and the different horse breeds they have on-site. The Los Angeles Equestrian Center is a 72-acre horse boarding facility and showground located in Burbank, CA. It’s where you’ll find “Everything Equestrian” from horse shows to riding lessons and trail rides. My husband’s best friend even had his wedding there – it’s a beautiful picturesque gem with Griffith Park as its backdrop!
The kids had a great time meeting Spirit, hand-painting on horses, going on a pony-ride and watching a Hunter/Jumper show at the main equidome. It was a fun and educational way to them excited about Spirit Riding Free – and as soon as we got home, we were streaming it on Nexflix!
