What kind of horse is in the movie Water for Elephants?

It's this horse. I didn't see the movie but the scene with Reese and this horse looks beautiful.

Anyone see the movie?

I can't figure out the breed.

I'd say its a Adalusian or Lustiano.

I wanted to see the movie but my mom went to see it with her friend and forbid me from seeing it. (seeing as I am sensitive when it comes to the treatment of horses)

I didn't know Water for Elephants, the movie is in the theatres. I read the book and it was a wonderful read. Gotta check out if it is in our local theatre.

The pic posted looks like andalusian to me, I seen the movie awhile ago and all I remember was thinking, in the book they were arabians, and these horses in the movie were clearly not arabians. Lol.

Not a Lipizzaner, no. I would go with the lucitano or andalusian.

That's interesting that that book had arabs and the movie didn't. Don't little things like that drive you crazy?

I have a hard time telling Lippizzaner, Andalusian and lusitano apart sometimes. Like this horse, I just can't tell.
When I first saw Lord of the Rings, I knew Gandalf had an Andalusian. But this one has a different type face to me.
That's a shame the movie is just eh. I was looking forward to it. I saw Reese in an interview and she said that it was less intimidating working with the elephants than the horses because the elephants move slower. I can totally see how that would be.
Thanks everyone.

Andalusian is my guess. Lippizanners have bigger "tummies" usually.`

SOodo I, but not with Lipizzaners. Andalusians and lusitanos look the same to me, but I find Lipizzaners have a particular look to them.
