Plot[edit]

In the early 1980s, Pierre Durand, Jr. gives up on his career as a lawyer and turns to professional show jumping.[1][4] He purchases Jappeloup de Luze (1975-1991) from Henry Delage (fr).[1][4] He loses at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California, but wins at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.[1][4]

Cast[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

It was shown at the COLCOA film festival in Los Angeles, California in 2013.[5]

For The Hollywood Reporter, the film offers "a rather classic mix of stunts and sentiment before galloping ahead to its stirring equine finale."[6]
