Horse Crazy (2002):
TEXT from DVD/video cover

The Secret's Out...
An adventure that will lasso your heart

When ruthless horse thieves try to rustle a magnificent wild mustang named "The General" it takes the antics of three horse crazy kids to out wit them and bring them to justice. After watching a movie called "The Wild Mustangs of Nevada," fourth graders Stoney, Tyler and Tyler's nosy sister Sam, follow their dream of capturing their own horse by stowing away in a car headed for Nevada. When the car breaks down in the desert, the would-be cowboys are discoverd and set out on their own.

And so begins an adventure of a lifetime, as the threesome must out smart, out wrangle and out lasso the bad buys and return The General to his rightful owner. An exciting story for the entire family, Horse Crazy will capture your imagination and lasso your heart.

Actor Marvin Payne is credited on the DVD/video slipcase/cover as "Marvin Pain." In the closing credits Payne's name is spelled correctly.
The DVD slipcase/back cover incorrectly credits Ramon Balcazar as the film's composer, probably because this text was copied from the slipcase of another Eric Hendershot/Pure Entertainment film "Message in a Cell Phone," which was composed by Balcazar. The actual composer for "Horse Crazy" was Merrill Jenson, and he is properly credited in the opening credits on screen.
