Any good horse movies to suggest? The ones I wore out when I was younger were 'International Velvet,' and 'Danny.' Would love to hear what others watched....and anything that's more current!

The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063091/) was an all-time favorite! :yes:

The Man from Snowy River was another horse camp classic.

This thread make me laugh.. I seriously wore out "Danny" to the point that the VHS tape's music was all slurry and funky. I hadn't thought about that movie in a long time. :)

I also loved "International Velvet" and used to run around screaming "it's the foal! It's the foal!". I think my parents finally got sick of listening to me and bought me a horse.

Sylvester was great. Totally unrealistic, but great.

LOVED Sylvester, though you have to check any and all horse-sense at the door. My ALL-TIME favorite movie (horse or otherwise) is Phar Lap. Best. Movie. Ever. Now I have to go cry. :-(

"Into The West" with Gabriel Byrne and Ellen Barkin. Not to be confused with another movie with the same name which is about the American west. This movie portrays two young Irish boys and their adventures through out the countryside of Ireland on the back of a gorgeous grey mare. Make sure to have the tissues ready. Wonderful movie and beautifully shot!!!!

National Velvet, International Velvet, Danny and The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit were shown in my house nearly every weekend until blockbuster stopped carrying them. This past christmas I asked my boyfriend to get them for me on DVD, so now they are miiiiiine!

I also liked Flicka and Dark Horse. There were always some other random horse movies at blockbuster that were absolutely terrible in every way but I of course watched them frequently regardless.

This movie portrays two young Irish boys and their adventures through out the countryside of Ireland on the back of a gorgeous grey mare. Make sure to have the tissues ready. Wonderful movie and beautifully shot!!!!

Hah - shortly after this movie came out I was at some party and a fellow from Ireland was there (I had just come back from a riding holiday there and was still aglow from the experience) and this Irish guy says to me "I can tell ye love yer harses" & how the Irish love their "harses" then proceeded to tell me how I had to see "Into the West'. His parting words "IN-TO THE WEST". So I had to see it- dragged my boyfriend.. needless to say my "glow" from riding in Ireland lasted a few more days after seeing Into the West.

and OMG Run Appaloosa Run - I loved that movie as a kid... cannot for the life of me remember if I ever saw that Disney "Horsemen" movie;

For those of us who have outgrown (never) the Disney-esque movies - every now and then if you go to Barnes & Noble or Borders (I suppose Amazon would be a great sourse) sometimes in their British TV collections find some horse related DVDs - I've gotten a couple of Dick Francis (hilarious because of bad 70's clothing and acting - but the racing scenes are great); The Irish RM (or something like that); and there's a good Sherlock Holmes that I Tivo'd off PBS (and if the DA for OJ Simpson would have seen this particular episode, they would have convicted him!) also there's an old Agatha Christie - Murder at a Gallop which is good fun to watch - Margaret Rutherford is great as Miss Marple

Compared to TWS, Sylvester was Oscar-worthy both in story and fact. :lol:

The best thing about TWS is you can play "Find the Inaccuracies or Just Plain Fake"....the game just goes on and on and on.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned "Big Spender". Now there's a classic. ;)

The Irish horse documentary is most likely the National Geographic special from the 80s called Ballad of the Irish Horse. My mom taped this off of TV for me and I watched it to death. However, I got a copy on DVD for my birthday last month from my mom! It still holds up and is a great watch. Plus, an awesome soundtrack by the Chieftons.

My personal favorites were both the Black Stallion and the Black Stallion returns. The first, while a great horse movie is a remakable film on its own.

Another one of my favorites was the Flicka sequal, Thunderhead, Son of Flicka. I had a copy taped off of TV from TNT I think (back when they used to be a classic movie channel).

Seabiscuit
Phar Lap
Danse Avec Lui aka Dance with Him (only in French, not a children's movie! Can be found in Google videos).
The Horse Whisperer
Bob Champion
Black Beauty

Here are some more worth watching that I don't think were already mentioned in this thread. Some of them can be found on youtube or google videos.

I saw some classic movie (i.e., in black and white) one evening that I now cant find on a web search. I think it was titled "Buenos Aires", and was about a woman who goes to argentina to look for JUMPERS! I was pleasantly suprised it was about jumpers, and of course had the handsome argentinian trainer/rider who caught her eye ;) She traveled to argentina and went to some cool breeding farms.

anybody else seen this one?

I don't think anyone has mentioned The Horse with the Flying Tail. It is from 1960, and I don't even know if it is still available. Walt Disney Pictures did the movie. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054993/combined

I haven't gone to netflix yet to see if they have it.

Where did you get the DVD version of 'Ballad of the Irish Horse,'? I've looked forever and only find it in vhs format!

Katie81
Sep. 14, 2009, 10:29 PM
Another one I forgot to mention is White Mane, a French film that came out in the mid-50s I believe. Directed by Albert Lamorisse, famous for the Red Balloon. This is a beautifully shot short film set in France about a boy and a Camargue horse. It even won the grand jury prize at Cannes, so this is far from a made for disney movie.

If you get the DVD, it will most likely be a Criterion Collection so the print is amazing, and will be even more so on a HD TV.

For those of you with Netflix, I believe you can watch it online for free (if you have a plan that includes it!).

Maybe some of you out there, and you know who you are,;) remember the Wide World of Disney in the 60's on tv. I used to always hope we were at my grandparents so we could watch it in color. I am pretty sure, but not positive, that Horse with the flying tail was a tv production. I think Hugh Wiley was in it, and it was not an actual movie. I am sure there was a narration, like most of the Disney stuff it was fabulous quality. The old tv show couldn't be beat for content. I think the Horse Masters, might have been tv only, and possibly the Miracle of the White Stallions.
OTOH, The Horse with the Flying Tail was a theatrical release, and the stars were Suzanne Pleschette, and Dean Jones I think, and of course, Aspercell....
My point about the Wide World of Disney-they made terrific dog movies too-anyone else remember Big Red and Nikki? I KNOW I saw those on tv, and Big Red was a two parter~!
As far as my favorite horse movies, First last and always, the Black Stallion. A nearly perfect movie.:yes:

The Man from Snowy River, corn pone story, but they got the horse stuff absolutely right, and as a bonus, the soundtrack is wonderful.

Champions is very good.
The Electric Horseman is pretty good, but another one with a terrible story, great scenery,[and lookin at a much younger Robert Redford,]

Murphy's Choice was on recently, and i don't think it was a very good movie, it WAS about training horses.
I also loved Wild hearts Can't be Broken.

I watched last weekend a documentary on HBO about Barbaro. It was INCREDIBLE! I was very tearful while watching...not because how he died but because the documentary showed how much heart this horse had. I highly recommend it...plus Michael Matz is in it...who doesn't like that! :)

That Barbaro documentary on HBO I think, oh my, I cried like a baby! I was at the St. Clements show in Saratoga when Barbaro won, crazy time!! everyone was under the tent watching!

As a kid, I loved Casey's Shadow, with Walter Mathew. Back when HBO ran the movies over and over, I must have watched it 100 times!!!

If you ever had a horse with laminitis that wasn't put down and see-sawed through its recovery and non-recovery, you feel for the Jacksons. I'm going through that now. Not fun.

I have never even HEARD of "The Horse with the Flying Tail!" (Larksmom, it's not the one with Dean Jones, that is "The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit".)

We have "The Ballad of the Irish Horse"...on laser disc! My brother and I watched it many, many many times. My brother has even gone to Ireland for a riding tour because of that and "The Irish RM" (and like the latter very nearly got horse-traded into taking one home by Willie Leahy.)

"The Man From Snowy River"
"The Black Stallion"
I'm glad I'm not the only one who's seen "The Horsemasters" (although if there is a horse film out there with worse use of close-ups, dummy horses, and reverse projection screens for actors who can't ride, please don't show me.) There is NO WAY ON EARTH I would ever ride that...whatever the heck that jump is supposed to be that has Annette's character rattled.

And, okay, so it's more about betting than the horses but I love "Let It Ride."

I was visiting with my Mom last night, and she looked through her old vhs collection and found a copy of The Horse with the Flying Tail. It is a wonderful narrated documentary that tells the story of the USET Show Jumper Nautical ridden by Hugh Wiley. This is footage from the late 50's and is a program worth watching, in my opinion.

I was also able to rewatch an old Mercedes 30,000 Grand Prix from Charlotte NC from 1984. It was great watching Michael Matz and Katie Monahan back in the day.

Sorry, Dancer, I was half asleep....:sleepy::sleepy: But there IS one called Horse w/flying tail. I am sure it was a Disney sort of a movie of the week sort of thing. They had a guy do all their narrations in the 60's and he was terrific. Flying tail is about Nautical, and the rough life he had before he became a jumper. Which reminds me of another Disney from back around then. The Tattooed Police Horse. No one EVER mentions that one! You are right about Gray Flannel, it was a theatrical release, but some of these others.... and funny thing is, I have several Disney channels, I need to monitor more closely to see if any of these oldies ever show up!

I have The Horse With the Flying Tail, International Velvet and The Ballad of the Irish Horse on VHS; the Red Pony and Phar Lap on the DVR.

The rarely aired Boots Malone (http://www.tcm.com/thismonth/article.jsp?cid=177605&mainArticleId=161065) from 1952 and starring William Holden as the aforementioned jockey agent 'Boots' Malone. For those interest in racing is perhaps the best racing life film you'll ever see. Turner Network Classics will air it on occasion when doing a Holden series.

We used to always do that with Breaking Free, a horse movie about a camp for blind kids that uses horses for therapeutic riding. Every other scene, "The horses is an Arabian!" "Now a Thoroughbred!" Good laugh all around.

I love:

LOVE these movies. And... I also love the horse scenes in "Dances with Wolves." One of my most favorite movies of all time.

I will also admit that I was a total sucker for Spirit when it came out... I think I drove everyone nuts with my obsession with the soundtrack and general Spirit paraphernalia. I think I even had a Spirit themed birthday that year. :lol:

Great thread idea, btw! I definitely intend to go to my local blockbuster and see if I can find some of the movies recommended here.

Wild hearts cant be broken (but because of the sexy guy and the story about the girl... I think the jumping off the ramp is quite dangerous..).. I do think that you can pretty much train horses to do whatever though, and the horses probably liked their jobs (after they did it a few times, and learned it).
