I so excited for War Horse too! I squealed when the trailer for it came on before Harry Potter. I'd REALLY love to see the stage production of it.

yep, it is based on the true story! The full movie (in parts) is actually on youtube.
Man from snowy river = love. I forgot about that one.

Yay thanks for the link! I'm excited to watch the movie. I never heard of it but it sounds pretty awesome.

Actually, the movie ended completely different than the book. I much preferred the book, it was just a better finish to the story. The movie focused more on the love story part of it.

Both the Snowy River movies (my heart still swells when I see him top the hill on the black horse in slow motion and I still cry when Denny falls).

One that a lot of people don't really know about is Rustler's Rhapsody. It's not really a "horse" movie per say, but it's a spoof of all the old cheesy westerns and his horse plays a fairly large part in it. I adore that movie.

Secretariat and Seabiscuit were both awesome. Speaking of which, I am now in the mood to watch Seabiscuit again.

Just watched Dreamer tonight, it's one of those movies where a real horseperson can sit there and pick it completely apart, but still a dang good movie.

Hidalgo is much the same way, you can pick the inconsistencies to death, but still very enjoyable.

Another good one is The Long Shot, it's about a dressage horse that goes blind but still competes, supposedly based on a true story as well.

Gosh, I could go on and on about horse movies. The majority of them are totally eyeroll worthy, but I still love them.

Oh, whoever mentioned Lonesome Dove...YES!! It always amazes me that Robert Duvall always has a fantastic horse in every movie he does, not those bracy giraffes that everyone else gets stuck riding.

It was me. I'd noticed that too, he does seem to always get the good draw! I love Lonesome Dove, if the AQHA wouldn't reject it, I'd love to name a mare after the "HB"! We've had a few over the years that got called that along with "Crazy Alice"

The first Flika was amazing and still in my top 5. The 2nd one was a little cheesy with to many slow motion sun spot light flowers falling moments but still was good. I also rally liked dreamer and racing stripes. Racing stripes was just really funny the flies are still my favorite part

I'm still boycotting the second Flicka along with thousands of others. But that's a topic for a whole other thread. But I do agree, the first one was great.

Oh, is the Silver Brumby the movie version of the book? I read that one and loved it! Will check that out for sure. I wish they'd make a movie of my favorite horse book Blaze of Glory, but I'm also afraid they'd mess up all the riding scenes, and that's almost worse than not seeing it, lol.

I'm going to look for all of these! Thank goodness for Ebay, our local video store sucks.
