** The moment after they escaped the Colonel at the end, in which Spirit allows Little Creek to ride him so they can return home. Especially since this is a CallBack to the moment earlier during their training in which Spirit trolled Little Creak by making him think he would let him ride him, only to throw him out.
** In particular, the moment after they leap the gorge together. Spirit lands, Little Creek falls off of him, both of them roll to a stop beside each other. Little Creek sits up...and for several long moments, they both just breathe hard and stare at each other, Little Creek holding onto Spirit's mane as the enormity of what just happened sinks in. And in that moment, they're more united than they've ever been.

--> '''Spirit:''' The story that I want to tell you cannot be found in a book. They say the history of the West was written on the saddle of the horse... but it's never been told from the ''heart'' of one. Not till now. I was born here, in this place that would come to be called "The Old West". But to my kind, the land was ageless. It had no beginning, and no end. No boundary between earth and sky. Like the wind in the Buffalo grass, we belonged here... we would always belong here. They say the mustang is the Spirit of the West. Whether that West was won or lost in the end, you'll have to decide for yourself. But the story I want to tell you is true. I was there. And I remember... I remember the sun and the sky, and the wind calling my name, in a time when wild horses ran ''free.''

** When Spirit pretends to collapse from exhaustion, the other horses are afraid he's dead. They soon cheer up and look overjoyed that Spirit's alright and hasn't given up.

Added DiffLines:

* While "Sound the Bugle" starts out depressing, it ends on a note of hope. Many viewers who are suffering through depression have cited the final verses as helping them cope:
-->''Then from on high\\
Somewhere in the distance\\
There's a voice that calls\\
"Remember who your are"\\
\\
If you lose yourself\\
Your courage soon will follow\\
So be strong tonight\\
Remember who you are\\
\\
Yeah\\
You're a soldier now\\
Fighting in a battle\\
To be free once more\\
Yeah, that's worth fighting for''

* If the whole "Horsey" scene with the little Lakota toddler and Spirit doesn't make you go "d'awwww", you obviously sold your soul for a bag of peanuts.
** Even more so when Spirit quickly goes from annoyed with the toddler grabbing his nose to instantly comforting and nuzzling her and especially the little smile on his face with the toddler leaves; given how he previouslt felt about humans, it's a small but lovely scene.
* Only a small moment, but a telling one nonetheless. Just before Spirit's loaded onto the train and 'Sound the Bugle' starts up, one of train workers pets him kindly and speaks calmly to him, saying that it'll be alright. It's good to see there are 'two-leggeds' that treat horses with genuine compassion, and who ''aren't'' Lakota.
