My friend and I used to love the movie Wild Horse Hank. Does anyone remember this one?

It could've been. It was about a woman who rescued these wild mustangs and rounded them up by herself I think. It was late 70's.

LOL, my friend and I would re-enact the movie with our Breyer horses. Wow, when us kids (ok very long time ago) had imagination.

Never heard of it... sounds interesting. What year did it come out? Late 70s you said? Who was in it?

Actually, you are not going to believe who is in it. Linda Blair is the girl, its from 1979. I found this on the net and see it came out on DVD in 2008, gotta get it now. And it was based on a book.
Wild Horse Hank is a movie filmed in 1979 directed by Eric Till starring Linda Blair, Michael Wincott and Richard Crenna. The movie is based on the teen novel The Wild Horse Killers, written by Mel Ellis in 1978.
Wild Horse Hank is the adventure of a brave young girl named Hank (Linda Blair) who is a dedicated cowgirl to saving a herd of wild mustangs from poachers. Hank is an independent girl in the film who has been around horses all her life. One day while out riding she happens upon some horse hunters who are rounding up a herd of mustangs to sell for pet food.[1]
Hank follows the hunters into town and releases the caged horses. If Hank is to save these wild animals, they must reach the protection of federal land. But the nearest such area lies across a desert, through a river and over a mountain range some 150 miles away.[2]
Pace, Hanks father (Richard Crenna) , objects to her plan but finally agrees to let her go. Hank begins her adventure, herding the horses toward the Rantan Game Preserve, but the epic drive soon becomes a contest of wills with the poachers trying to outwit Hank whenever possible. In the film, Hanks love interest Charlie Connors (Michael Wincott) assists with her with her adventure and is eager to earn her respect and get to know her.
The film was filmed on location at Dinosaur Provincial Park and Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada.[3] and was broadcasted in 1983 as a Television Premier. It is also known under the alternatives titles as; Hard Ride Hank, Hard Ride to Rantan, Long Shot in USA.
Wild Horse Hank was released on DVD on September 16, 2008 for the 1st time.[4]

Wow. I hadn't really heard of her before (she was in The Exorcist, *shiver*), but it's interesting that she is also a rider in RL. Being a mustang fan I'll have to see this... crossing my fingers that it has a happy ending haha. So many of the horse movies I see I end up bawling over xD
