Continuity mistake: During the cattle drive Nullah starts out by riding a Skewbald (brown and white) horse but in subsequent shots the horse is Piebald (black and white). In later scenes the horse remains Piebald but the pattern of the markings changes between shots indicating that the pony was actually grey.

Continuity mistake: As Mr. Fletcher is riding up on horseback to greet Lady Ashley, you can see him riding up next to a parked, red truck, that has the front end pointed away from the house. Keep an eye on that truck, because it will have the front end pointing towards the house, as Fletcher gets closer to Lady Ashley.

Continuity mistake: As Lady Ashley and Ramsden are walking in to the horse stables, while discussing the sale of Faraway Downs, you can see the background of a servant, along with a serving cart, and one closed door that would lead further in to the stables; as the two walk away from that scene, take notice that the background has changed - it now has a wheelbarrow full of hay, the door is open, and the servant and cart have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Flynn is on the ground and the cattle are stampeding towards him, you can see him raise his chest up off of the ground to look back at the stampede; immediately, the next shot, you see Flynn looking back at the stampede with his face and chest more closer to the ground.
