Why didn't the pony have a pony-tail?

The movie title is really misleading if you ask me. My daughter and Son, hated this, as it made them cry when the Barbie almost got lost (too emotional for children if you ask me). I hated the overuse of the colour pink as well. Like where are we CANDYLAND. Not good for children under 17 due to the mature themes of horses. Also a cameo from vector, the smurfs and Shrek would have massively improved it!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism

Mindless fun and more wholesome than other Barbie shows.

The sisters version of Barbie seems more gentle than the other iterations of Barbie television. Sometimes the attitudes displayed aren’t fabulous but generally pretty harmless movie length Barbie. Scary when rider falls off horse and is lost and surrounded by wolves but magic saves the day!
