Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

Revealing mistake: After Spirit gets his second wind when the Colonel is attempting to break him, he breaks the girth/cinch strap by catching it on the fence. At one brief point, the pole of the fence actually appears to pass between Spirit and the girth of the saddle.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie, when we first see the Cimarron herd galloping by, there are numerous horses that disappear and reappear as the camera angle changes.

Question: Why does the Colonel let Spirit escape at the end of the movie? I know it's meant to be a sign of respect. But why would they respect each other? In my opinion they have no reasons to have mutual respect.

Answer: Because the colonel saw that Spirit and Little Creek had a strong bond, and how hard Spirit had worked for his freedom.

Answer: You don't have to have mutual respect to do what is right or just. Letting Spirit escape was the morally right thing for the Colonel to do.
