This Summer we were invited by DreamWorks and #AlliedContigo for a fun afternoon at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. We were there to celebrate the new show DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free by not only hanging out with some horses, but riding horses and even painting horses. It was definitely a very memorable afternoon.
Spirit Riding Free is an animated series based on the 2002 Oscar-nominated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. The series is produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and distributed by Netflix. My girls love to scour Netflix. Six episodes of the first season premiered on May 5, 2017 and then the series was renewed for a second season and those episodes premiered in early September.
About the show-- Spirit Riding Free
In a small town in Texas, 12-year-old Lucky meets a wild horse named Spirit. Lucky bonds with the stallion and eventually breaks him free. Lucky also meets two other girls, Prudence and Abigail, who both own horses, Chica Linda, a palomino, and Boomerang, a paint horse. They embark on everyday adventures across the land.
My daughters LOVE this show. It was a show that both my older 8 year old and young 7 year old can watch and enjoy together. I asked my daughters what they liked most about the show and each had a different reason. My older daughter loved the friendships and the adventures and my younger daughter loved the horses, because they're just so cute!
I did not know that you can paint on the horses. I did not know this was a thing, but apparently it is. It is not harmful to the horses, they actually like being petted so much and I loved that the kids were able to get so up close to the horses. By the look on my daughters face, you can tell she loves to paint and loved being so close to the horses.
I am a city girl through and through and horses are very majestic creatures to me, like they might as well be Unicorns. Even though my in-laws live in Horsetown USA, I am still caught off guard when I am near a horse. They take my breath away each time. I loved watching my daughter getting close to the horses, although these were some ponies, it was still very memorable for them.
Thank you to Dreamworks and #AlliedContigo for such a fun memorable afternoon.
