We received this email from Club members Diana and Michael Gibb and thought it might start a conversation between the members about films of Dartmoor:

Hi everyone, Following on from an article by Jimmy some time ago I purchased the Run Wild Run Free DVD as a pressy for my husband.
We have spent this afternoon watching it and soaking up the Dartmoor Scenery, picking out the scenes where we thought that Jimmy must have ridden the pony and going through the emotional mill that the final scenes of this film put its watchers through.
What a lovely afternoon we have spent and thank you to Jimmy for bringing this wonderful film to our attention. We recognised several places – the ford and various places on the moor and also the entrance to Great Sherberton Farm – where we used to ride out from on our wonderful Summer Holidays spent on Dartmoor with our children.
Anyway wishing you all keep safe and if you have any other suggestions for DVD’s filmed on Dartmoor please let us know.
Cannot wait to see you all again on your next open day for Frost Racing Club.
Kind Regards
Diana and Michael Gibb
