Check out three neigh worthy clips below from DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free: Riding Academy Part 2 that feature Jane Lynch (Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as “Coach Bradley” and Cassidy Huff (The Andrew Klavan Show) as “Eleanor Kimble.”
Inspired by the 2002 Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free: Riding Academy Part 2 takes place during their final term as Foals, Lucky, Pru & Abigail have finally adjusted to life at Palomino Bluffs Riding Academy when Mariciela announces that she and Mystery will be joining them! As the PALs become the PALMs the girls must learn to navigate friendships both old and new, especially when Eleanor, a new student, and potentially a faster racer than Lucky and Spirit, arrives on the racetrack. Together they will face their biggest challenges yet as the girls bravely encounter new adventures, experience new emotions, and discover that friendship is what ultimately matters most.
This season features a new character, Eleanor, who uses a wheelchair and is one of the highest ranked horse racers and most competitive riders that Lucky has ever encountered. Eleanor is voiced by Cassidy Huff, an actress with a disability herself. “I have always said that my ultimate mission in my career is to be what I didn’t have growing up. I want someone to look at me performing in whatever capacity and think to themselves: “Well, if she can do it, I can do it too!” If I can genuinely inspire or motivate one person, I have done my job,” said Huff.
