Black Beauty question

Just watched Black Beauty for the first time since becoming interested and involved with horses. It had a lot more meaning this time around. I have a question about the scenes where Black Beauty is galloping in the meadow with Ginger and Merrylegs. Ginger bucks a few times as she is galloping. Is that her actually having fun or is it a negative reaction to being forced to gallop? Perhaps in reality she doesn't really like the horses she's being forced to frollick with. I know it is all speculation, but I'd like some opinions. Thanks!

It could be either, I havent watched the movie for a while but lots of times horses buck and kick when they are playing ith their buddies in the feild.

I would have to watch it, but it could be play.

Like today, as I watched my horse happily bucking as he galloped away from me across the pasture. Grrrr

I'd hve to watch it again to make a guess. But my horses always buck and stuff when they're running on their own, playfully.

I just recently watched it myself and wondered the same thing, some of it looks playful, and other parts it seems like they are making them do it somehow to make the movie more "pretty" for non-horse folk.. lol

It has been a long time for me too. Years since I saw it but I seem to recall that it looked pretty typical of how my horses would play. Some pin their ears and buck and kick in fun and others don't. I don't know. I think to really know, we would have had to be there and see how she was being treated and/or cued to "play" and how she reacted between takes.

Ha, I watch this about once a month, it is happy bucking, herself and merrylegs get on well and she is just releasing some pent up energy and having a laugh. Love that movie

It could be anything. The last time I watched it, I thought it just looked like they had a bunch of pent-up energy and were happy to be able to run around. My horses buck and run around like maniacs when they're in their favorite pasture.
