The Black Stallion was never one of my favorites. Now, if you can find it, get a copy of Danny to watch... The greatest (and cheesiest) horse movie EVER!

Hey speedracer, I posted that the Stallion was a mare. I watched the making of the movie and thought I heard them commenting on the mares (actually I do remeber they used more than one horse) that they used. My mistake, sorry. N

I too watched In Pursuit of Honour and thought it was great. It said it was based on a true story and I was so interested in it that I tried to research what became of the horses but never found any solid infomation on the event. Maybe you know if it was true or not?

Kiwi, you were partially right. They used a filly in some of the foal scenes in The Young Black Stallion. Since the Black was an adult horse in the first film, they only used geldings and stallions.

I have Arabians, so the making of that first movie was a really big thing for me back in the day.

Yes, In Pursuit of Honor is based on a true story. They Hollywood-ized it to make it more interesting of course, but the essential story is true.

The last U.S. Army remount division did take some horses up to Canada and let them go, instead of 'disposing' of them as per orders. Whether or not they were actually chased by units in tanks and military vehicles is questionable.

Makes for a better story if they were though, right?

I love that movie too. Unfortunately, half the people that have ever seen that movie have posted on this thread. I thought it was great but nobodyhas seen it. I also like Good Ole Boys. Tommy Lee Jones is the star and he said in an interview that it was one of his favorite roles.

My all time favorite horse movie growing up was "The Silver Stallion" Or Silver Brumby by Evelyn Mitchell. I know it's far fetched, there being no such thing as a mystical silver brumby that can manipulate the weather or a ghost horse that can never be caught or caputured but it was a great flick all the same ;)

I have issues with all animal movies-no one will watch them with me. From horses to rats to dogs, I can't enjoy them for all the stupidity, bad training/riding, bad ownership, and farfetchedness. I mean, a kid who has never ridden galloping a gorgeous black stallion BBAB across the beach? Give me a break. I don't have the "willing suspension of disbelief" needed for those type of movies

There's a real live black stallion at my barn, two of them actually, but only one is PURE black the other has white socks on his back legs.

Masatisan, none of the horses used in The Black Stallion were all black.

Cass Ole had a white star and four white socks. They dyed his star and socks black for the movie.

Ibn Fadjur, the horse in the scene with the snake, was actually a grey they dyed completely black.

The horse in the swimming scene wasn't even an Arabian. It was a French swimming horse. I don't know what breed he was, but definitely not an Arabian.

The magic of the movies.....

All time best horse movie in the world is The Man from Snowy River. This is an Aussie film - no hollywood big budget production. But I love it, one particular riding scene inspired me as a child. The main character leaps his horse over the edge of a near vertical hill and gallops it down the mountain. It was amazing to watch as it was an actual ride, not done with SFX. The riders head was almost resting on that horses rear, he had to lean that far back as the incline was so steep. And the little dun that he was riding never missed a beat - what a legend! The movie was based on the poem The Man From Snowy River by Banjo Patterson . Great poem, awesome movie.
