The New Adventures of Black Beauty: Season 1


The classic story of a girl and her beloved stallion moves forward 20 years and travels from pastoral England to the rugged wilderness of New Zealand. Jenny ( Stacy Dorning, The Adventures of Black Beauty) is now a newly married veterinarian. But when her husband’s ship goes missing, it’s up to Jenny and her headstrong stepdaughter, Vicky, to somehow bring the deserted New Zealand farm back to life. The adventures are more exciting than ever in this challenging new land, especially when young Vicky and Jenny find a special ebony horse they call BLACK BEAUTY.

Dove Review

Anyone who enjoyed the original series will love this one as well. Jenny is now grown and has moved to a new land. With new adventures set in the young colony of New Zealand, Vicky and Jenny are soon joined by Dr. Gordon. Together the family hopes for the return of Jenny’s husband and Vicky’s father. Each adventure brings to life the situations of the times for the family and shows how they work together with the help of Black Beauty to help those around them.

As in the original this also is a period piece of the 1900s and is a classic show that demonstrates the rough life that people endured during this era of unsettled land. There are also some interesting discoveries shown that are way before their time in terms of characters thinking about the environment. This is a collection that will entertain the entire family and all generations.

We award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this collection of wonderful episodes.
