I really like My Friend Flicka, the 1943 version...the newer one is lame. National Velvet is good too, but I think it's only because my sister and I would make fun of the main character, she's kind of annoying. But they're both oldies, but goodies.

I'd recommend PharLap, National Velvet, Dreamer and Seabiscuit

Most of the time if you look for movies that are based on true stories, you won't get those sticky-sweet, cheesy movies like lassie. Seabiscuit was one of the best, along with Ruffian (though that one was terribly sad). Hidalgo was a good movie for entertainment value but I wonder about the "based on a true story" part of it. My favorite movies of all time were probably the Snowy River movies. That is why I love black horses now. I still get chills when he tops the hill for the first time at a dead run on the black horse (in slo-mo no less ). Though Second Chances is more of a kid's movie, I still enjoyed it and Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken was great. Black Beauty is a classic that isn't terribly touchy-feely.

Whatever you do, avoid Casey's Shadow. That was one of the worst movies I have ever seen (and I have seen some doosies).

Second Chances

I haven't seen it since I was a girl, but it was a tear jerker.
