[RC] Start of race in Hidalgo - lisa

I just got the movie Hidalgo for my birthday. First time I watched it, I
laughed. I have NEVER seen so many horses so well-behaved at the start of
ANY endurance race! Even my well-mannered girl gets wild and acts up!
There were only two horses that even showed their excitement. YEAH
I also thought about sending Viggo Mortenson a letter asking him if he
was going to attend any Endurance rides in the future after doing this
movie, but I found out that since his rise to popularity from the Lord of
the Rings series, he is no longer accepting fan mail since he can't
possibly answer each letter himself. I don't know if this is a good or
bad thing yet, but it is his life. I saw he is an artist and has done
exhibits for his work. Maybe someone can ask him about it sometime and
pass his answer on to us.
I don't want to take away from Tevis talk, or turn this into talk about
Frank Hopkins or the movie, just wanted to share a laugh over Hollywood
with those who know better. :0)\

In His Hands,
