By the way why are people boycotting the 2nd Flicka movie? I never saw the first one, but I'd like to.

You can google it and find out more, but basically, Fox films caused the death of two horses while filming the movie, got the American Humane Association to sign off on it anyway, saying no animals were harmed and then tried to pay people off to get it swept under the rug.

So I have two movies that were not listed (I think lol read this thread 2 seperate times)
Silvester....about a girl who falls in love with this too bulky of a horse for ranch work. She ends up eventing him in kentucky. Great movie. Would like to find it again...been awhile
And another is flash. Its a disney movie about a boy and this horse. He gets the horse and tough things happen (don't wanna spoil it) and he ends up selling his beloved horse flash. Anyways he runs away with the horse on a journey through many states because he is trying to find his father or something like that. Also a great movie. I probably can find more but.... I'm drawing a blank.

Simply wow! How that happened?!


I love Dreamer. It's not so much about even about the racing/the horse as it is about the relations in family. I think all actors were great.

I've seen Black Stallion, and have to say wasn't impressed at all. Same about Horse Whisperer - darn boring (plus the end of the movie is just hmmmmmmm.... ).

Seabiscuit is a nice movie.

Racing Stripes - hilarious (although very kiddie of course :) ).

Spirit - cartoon, but I really liked it.

I wanted to rent Secretariat and never managed to do that. Thinking if I want to buy it to watch. Is it worth it? Is it like Dreamer or more like Seabiscuit?

KV, this was part of the original press release preceding the boycott.

Press Release News Wire


Houston, TX (PRWEB via PRWeb) October 19, 2006 -- Fox 2000 Pictures will release "Flicka," the long-awaited remake of Mary O'Hara's treasured novel, nationwide October 20.

The movie stars Tim McGraw and Alison Lohman, and is a feel-good movie about a wild horse and the teenager who tries to tame her. However, the making of the movie was anything but feel good when two of the horses used in the filming were killed on the set.

The American Humane Association, who oversees the safety of animals on movie sets, had four representatives on the set of "Flicka" from the first day of production, and pre-approved all activities planned for the horses. It was under the AHA’s oversight that two horses were killed within the span of two weeks.

On April 11, 2005, the AHA reported that a horse broke its leg and had to be euthanized. In a studio briefing dated April 25, 2005, the AHA disclosed that a second horse broke his neck and died during the filming of "Flicka" two days earlier.

Observers of the second event were quoted as saying that the horse was one of four that were galloping around an arena trailing 30-foot ropes and fell when its back legs became entangled in the ropes. Other reports stated that two horses stumbled, presumably over the ropes, and collided.

An eyewitness account sent by email to Int'l Fund for Horses at the time alleged that in recreating a wild horse race (a rodeo event) for the movie, a group of horses were "released into an arena with wranglers jumping on the terrified horses, biting them, dragging them down and otherwise assaulting them." The horses naturally panicked and two collided heavily into each other. One of the horses did not get back up, sustaining a broken neck, and died. There were conflicting reports on whether the horses were wild or trained rodeo horses.

"It doesn’t matter if the horses were trained or not. Trailing long ropes behind frightened horses is a recipe for disaster. When you have people yelling and jumping on the horses it can cause fear in even the best-trained animal. A terrified horse will fight or flee, and injuries are bound to happen," stated IF4H President, Vivian Farrell.

The Screen Actors Guild pay the AHA to monitor animal use in films and award the "No Animals Were Harmed" End Credit Disclaimer according to standards set by the organization. After the deaths of the horses, the AHA did an internal investigation and concluded the deaths were "unavoidable" and that there was proper oversight on the part of the group. However, they agreed that the movie would not be given the usual "No Animals Were Harmed" credit at the end of the film.

"By all accounts the horses used by the movie "Flicka" were sturdy types, not delicate horses like Arabians or Thoroughbreds. Yet these horses met brutal deaths," commented Farrell. "I question whether or not it is a major conflict of interest when the organization responsible for monitoring an industry is supported by it."
And I was mistaken that they added the "were not harmed" to the movie credits, but they did claim there was no wrongdoing.

OP, sorry I hijacked your thread, but another movie that I have and had forgotten about is "The Red Pony" made back in 1949.

Thanks for sharing apachie! I won't be bothering to watch the 2nd one now either.

Val- Secretariat was awesome! A few historical inaccuracies but a great movie. We saw in the theater twice and bought it on blu ray. My little monster & I have watched I don't know how many times. She was riding shortly after seeing it for at least the 5th time and yells "Big red done ate his breakfast, you are about to see something you ain't never seen before"
