Favorite Horse Books & Movies?

What's everyone's favourite books & movies/tv shows dealing with horses?
It can be any kind of book or movie, from training books/movies to fantasy, short stories to novels, informational videos to stories.

My favorites are:

Green Rider series by Kristen Britain
Rhiannon's Ride series by Kate Forsyth.
Oh and of course the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley. :3

The New Adventures of Black Beauty (TV Series from 1992)
National Velvet
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmarron
And of course, Saddle Club when I was younger.

I love John Lyons' book, "Troubleshooting."

I also like Stacy Westfall's training DVDs - the groundwork and starting young colts ones are great!

"Riding Lessons" and "Flying Changes" both by Sara Gruen
"Chosen By A Horse" by Susan Richardson, very very sad but I couldnt put it down it was such a good story!!
"Man O' War" by Walter Farley
"Hope Rising" by Kim Meder (i am currently reading it is amazing!! A must read, its a true story about a lady who builds a ranch for abused neglected horses and for misfortunate families and children.) There is a second book "Bridge Called Hope".
"She Flies Without Wings" by Mary D. Midkiff

All The Pretty Horses (even tho it isnt all about horses, a horse is the reason for a lot of the trouble in the movie, it is also a book by Cormac McCarthy who also wrote The Crossing another amazing book)

A Horse for Danny
I could go on!!!
