Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2017

Following the box-office success of the first film about teenager Wendy Thorsteeg's life with horses (WENDY – THE MOVIE), the cast has now been reunited under the direction of Hanno Olderdissen for a sequel with new adventures. Wendy has been living happily with her parents at Rosenborg for the past year, but her granny's horse ranch is close to bankruptcy. When Wendy learns that the owner of the neighboring stable is organizing a youth tournament, it seems that winning the top prize might solve all their problems. The traumatized show horse Penny has the potential to win if she wasn't afraid of jumping...and then Wendy also has to make sure that she isn't neglecting her invalid horse Dixie...
