Peter Lundy and the Medicine Hat Stallion is a 1977 TV film written by Jack Turley and directed by Michael O'Herlihy. This is Leif Garrett when he was still young and not into drugs and a self-destructive life pattern. I have this book and love this little story about a boy with a father who loves him but doesn't know how to show love and who is extra tough on him to try to make him strong. His father doesn't understand this boy who is like his mother; sensitive and loving, and so he is always ragging him about everything. They have a complicated relationship; the father who can't show love or talk well to his son and the boy who has grown up wary of his father's criticisms. The boy, Peter, becomes a Pony Express rider, escapes his father and goes off to find a new life. He also gets to be near the horse he loves. This story illustrates how easy it is to believe that someone doesn't love you, when they really do, and how forgiving is important. Be aware though, that it has a sad ending. So be prepared to cry. But it's worth it and this is an excellent story to show kids what the Old West and the Pony Express were like.
