I haven't watched it. I wasn't very impressed with the idea of something going opposite of the movies entire point, but hey if kids like it that's cool. I already had my Spirit, so maybe they can have this one.

Ponyfan: Well that herd is so small, I kind of had the idea that if this is Spirit and Rain's descendant that when he came of age and was old enough to be driven out of the herd, he formed his own small band.

True: Yeah you're right. The making eyes from the train moment is kind of weird.

If the Spirit of Riding Free is a descent of the original Spirit and Rain where is the original Spirit? DreamWorks official character bio for the new Spirit says he is the leader of the herd so does that mean the original Spirit and Rain are gone?

I know movies don't follow this normally but usually in wild herds only one stallion moves with them. Younger stallions or older stallions are kicked out and either band together or get their own herds, so it's possible it's just s completely different herd since the horse is a stallion and older he would wouldn't be with Spirit and Rain.

Might be. How long do wild/feral horses live compared to domesticated ones? Plus young males are driven outta the herd so they won't compete for breeding  rights with the established stallion.

Thanks everyone. I didn't think about this descendant of Spirit being old enough to be the leader of his own herd or that he might have been pushed out of his original herd when he came of age and formed a new herd. 

I haven't watched any of the episodes yet.

Well horses do reach full maturity around 4-5 years of age.  ^.^

For anyone who is playing Star stable: There's an event going on where you can help Spirit in missions and by doing so befriending him and even add him to your own herd of horses. :)
As for the new serie, I haven't seen it and I'm a bit afraid to.

Well... I got bored and watched the first episode.  And then watched all of it.  I actually like it.  It has quite a few problems but, I can understand how little girls might get into this show.

I watched the first two episodes during lunch today and I thought it was pretty cute!  Granted, it's cheesy at times but I still enjoyed it a lot and I'll definitely watch the rest of the episodes.  As someone who loves horses and prefers cartoons to live action, there are not as many cartoons about horses out there as you'd expect, so this show was definitely a welcome addition to Netflix.  Now I just wish they'd go ahead and add the rest of the Horseland episodes that they're missing! 

Actually, speaking of Horseland, this show does have kind of a similar vibe (although in Spirit Riding Free the horses don't talk to each other), so if you like Horseland I'd give it a shot.

I remember Horseland! I only caught a handful of episodes on TV years and years ago... as for Spirit Riding Free maybe if I can pretend the original movie doesn't exist while watching it I'll be able to give it a shot.

Honestly it is so different from the movie that if not for the name and a couple of other elements I'd never have guessed they were even related.  I was worried that the cartoon would bother me since I love the movie so much, but it's so different that I can enjoy both in their own right.  So I'd say it's definitely worth a try :)

This is good to hear.  I won't be able to watch it anyway as I don't have Netflix, but I'm glad it's not awful.

I know I'm behind, but I just watched the first episode. I couldn't really get in to it much. I loved the original Spirit and tried to give this series a chance but there was too much that didn't make sense or seemed out of place to me.

I would love to try that if I knew how much the subscriptions were XD
I still have not tried to watch even snippets of this show so I can't judge it.. I do wish there was a proper 2nd movie but that likely will not happen
