Lead actor Jeremy Irvine had never ridden a horse prior to being cast in this film, and this was his very first feature film.
Some days are best forgotten. Today ain't one of them.
Practice Cavalry charge scene: The adult horse Joey can be seen just prior to the practice cavalry charge with a white mark in its hair above its right eye. During the charge there is a close up of Joey's face and the white mark is absent. The color of this horse is also a slightly darker chestnut to that of the horse at the end of the charge. Subsequent shots through the film do not show this white mark and especially the shots of the young horse the mark is also absent.
