Who is Michael Schoeffling!!!!?
You might remember him as Jake Ryan from the cult classic Sixteen Candles? (with Molly Ringwald)
Or as the love interest of Winona Ryder in Mermaids?
But did you know that he was also in another of my ALL TIME FAVORITE horse movies, Sylvester?
Now this movie is a hard find!
I cant say it will be good because I haven't seen it in 15 years, but I cant tell you that as a little girl...it totally rocked! As far as I can remember Sylvester is about a young girl named Charlie (Melissa Gilbert), a 16 year old orphan, who is working at a stockyard in some dust bowl of a town when she finds this huge wild unbroke gray gelding that she names Sylvester. After much drama and heart ship, she ends up competing on Sylvester at a Olympic Three Day Event! I wont spoil the ending by telling you what happens then. I might have, if I could remember...but I don't...so the secret is safe with me.
