Join DreamWorks SPIRIT RIDING FREE in the Cattle Barn Speaker Area on Friday and Saturday from 10:00-2:00 to enjoy coloring, spin-the-wheel and giveaways! You could win Spirit lip balm, bookmarks, hair ties, pencils, and posters! You'll also get a chance to see highlights from Season 5!  All new episodes of Spirit Riding Free begin streaming on Netflix May 11.

Inspired by the Oscar nominated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, DreamWorks Animation Television introduces an all-new original television series, Spirit Riding Free, a coming-of-age story about three best friends, the horses they love, and a world of adventure.

A daring and natural-born leader, 12-year-old Lucky moves from the big city to wild ranch country where she feels like a fish out of water. Her life changes when she meets a wild mustang she calls Spirit, and they form an incredible bond that cannot be broken. Along with their new best friends, Abigail and Pru, Lucky and Spirit set off on daring adventures, push their limits, and discover what it means to be truly free.
