The New Adventures of Black Beauty - Ride a Black Horse

Television (Excerpts) – 1990

Following on from the classic English TV series cherished by herds of horse-loving girls, the New Adventures follow Vicky Denning, who emigrates to the antipodes with her stepmother. After arriving she is captivated by a mystic black horse. . This extract from the fourth episode sees Vicky striving to convince the postmasters (Bill Kerr and Ilona Rodgers) that she and Beauty can be posties. She also faces hostility from local kids (including a pre Shortland Street Claire Chitham). The co-production featured many New Zealand cast and crew, including lead actor Amber McWilliams, who played Vicky.

I want someone with a good horse.
– Postmaster (Bill Kerr) to Victoria (Amber McWilliams)
