Your favorite horse movies!

What are your favorite horse movies? I've watched Dreamer (loved it!), Seabiscuit, Black Beauty and Miracle of the White Stallions. I'd like to get Secretariat from the library some time. What are some of your favorites?

Seabiscuit is my all time favorite. Know every line of that movie!

Are we talking a movie based solely on horses or a movie in which horses figure prominently?

If it's the latter, then The Man From Snowy River and Return to Snowy River are two of my favorite all-time movies and are the reason I fell in love with horses. I watched The Man From Snowy River when I was three and wanted to be just like Jim Craig.

If it's the former, I'm not really a big fan of movies strictly about horses, although Secretariat was pretty good.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Anyone remember the Disney ones?

Run Appaloosa Run
The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit
Cristobalito (about a Paso)

I really enjoyed National Velvet when I was younger

And who can forget that gorgeous Fresian in the movie Ladyhawke?

I like "My Friend Flicka" the 1943 version, and "National Velvet". And "Black Beauty" always makes me cry, but I still love it.

I'd have to say Black Beauty and Spirit. I find most of the other ones really annoying.

When I was a toddler, I used to love watching "Rainbow Bright" mainly because, she had a horse named starlight and I always wished I could have an awesome horse like that... lol

I love Dreamer, Flicka, and The Princess Stallion.

Spirit! Hands down. I have some friends that I could sit and watch that with any day. It's our first choice when it's rainy and we can't ride (we're wranglers at a summer camp).

I'm not that big a fan of the Seabiscuit movie anymore after reading the book it's based on. I got them both for Christmas when the movie came out. I read the book a few years ago, then tried to watch the movie again. The book goes into way more detail and is quite a bit gorier, but very interesting.
