Pre-school and young children are fascinated to see the real life horse action in this 40 minute film introduced by their favourite farm cartoon, Tractor Ted.
We find this one of the most popular films with both grown ups and children alike as Tractor Ted goes behinds the scenes for a day in the life at one of the world’s top racing yards, Andrew Balding’s historic, Park House Stables, Kingsclere in Berkshire. Watch how the athletes of the horsey world are kept in the peak of condition for their next race. See how fast they train with their stable mates on the gallops, how they are given a bath to cool down and how they can even use a running machine and take a swim around the pool!
It takes all sorts of interesting machines to keep the horses well fed and their stables clean, like big mowers, hay turners and balers. But everything is worth the effort when the horses win their races! Tractor Ted takes the children off to Newbury Racecourse to see if his horse can beat all the others to the finishing post. Billy the stable hand doesn’t have such a good day as he gets a soaking! As always, the story-lines, sing along songs and interaction by Tractor Ted with the children makes this DVD one you’ll be happy for your kids to watch again and again.
40 mins playing time; packed with adventure!
