Favorite Horse Books & Movies?
What's everyone's favourite books & movies/tv shows dealing with horses?
It can be any kind of book or movie, from training books/movies to fantasy, short stories to novels, informational videos to stories.
My favorites are:
Green Rider series by Kristen Britain
Rhiannon's Ride series by Kate Forsyth.
Oh and of course the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley. :3
The New Adventures of Black Beauty (TV Series from 1992)
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmarron
And of course, Saddle Club when I was younger.
I love John Lyons' book, "Troubleshooting."
I also like Stacy Westfall's training DVDs - the groundwork and starting young colts ones are great!
I dont read much but for movies:
Horse Whisperer (VERY GOOD NOVEL but the movie SUCKED compared to the book)
Seabiscuit (This book is one of my favs of all time, best horse book I have ever read, EVER)
The Man From Snowy River
The Man From Snowy River Returns
Wild Hearts Cannot be Broken
Black Beauty (1994 version)
i love movies

Saved by a Horse-very good read
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
A movie that I loved that I havent seen mentioned is Sylvester.
For books my favorites are the Black Stallion books
also "Black Horses for the King" by Anne McCaffery. Anyone who is into Fresians or Medieval times should definitely read this!
"Riding Lessons" and "Flying Changes" both by Sara Gruen
"Chosen By A Horse" by Susan Richardson, very very sad but I couldnt put it down it was such a good story!!
"Man O' War" by Walter Farley
"Hope Rising" by Kim Meder (i am currently reading it is amazing!! A must read, its a true story about a lady who builds a ranch for abused neglected horses and for misfortunate families and children.) There is a second book "Bridge Called Hope".
"She Flies Without Wings" by Mary D. Midkiff
"All The Pretty Horses" by Cormac McCarthy---amazing book!!
I also liked the "Heartland" series and Saddle Club series
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimaron (is one of my fave movies!!)
National Velvet and International Velvet
The Horse Whisperer
All The Pretty Horses (even tho it isnt all about horses, a horse is the reason for a lot of the trouble in the movie, it is also a book by Cormac McCarthy who also wrote The Crossing another amazing book)
Touching Wild Horses
A Horse for Danny
I could go on!!!
