My mother, Madeline Ferland Spies, was born and raised in Middlebury, Vermont. Like many adolescent girls, she loved horses. She fondly and proudly told us she rode one of Robert Frost's horses in a parade in Middlebury. If this film was shot in 1948 when my mother was probably 12 or 13 years old, there is a good chance the horse shown was the one she rode. It is also possible, 2-3 years later, she rode the filly or colt shown or an entirely different horse. Thanks for sharing!
