  1. From Louise Love, Boulder, Colorado:
    Last summer, my friend John rode one of the horses that was used in making the film “Dear Eleanor.”
    “Dear Eleanor,” uses two horses from Nederland, Colorado located at Sundance Lodge in the Rockies. The horses are owned by rancher, “Cindy,” whose family were miners, and she can still win mining contests! I took my friend’s picture last July 4, 2013 riding one of the two horses used in the film. We look forward to the 2014 film!
