    there is a series world of horses that it really good, world of horse is tell about all the different horses and what they do its good. Heartland is awesome i just love it. its about this family in Canada. Amy and Lou are two of the main people who are on the ranch there is about 4 others but, Amy and Lou’s mother was killed in a car accident. Amy and Lou continue to keep their mother’s dream alive by healing abused and neglected horses. its great. then there’s wildfire its about a race horse and a ex-con and the race horse. and Chris the ex-con she is offered this job at a Thoroughbred racing farm were the buy wildfire the horse it is really good. Those are the best TV show i can think of then there’s heartland the book series that’s really good

      everything you say reminds me of black beauty , but the guy didn’t own or run a ranch, he was a stable boy who loved the horse more than everyone else. can’t think of any other movie that could match with that story. =)

    I watched this movie when I was 4-6 so I think it is a 1990′s movie. All I remember is it starts out with brother and sister sneaking out and going for a night ride (the sister begs her brother in to going cuz he doesn’t want to go), the brother falls of his horse and dies. The sister feels guilty. They were teenagers. That is all I remember, sorry that there isn’t much detail.

    Okay, so FX on demand is making me crazy right now. Whilst my son is watching Space Chimps, about halfway through, they switch to a minute long clip of a girl riding a horse through the woods. It then switches to a school bus, where kids are watching her ride the horse and when the school bus backfires, the girl riding the horse has to jump over a tree that’s fallen in the path. The kids in the bus talk about how the girl doesn’t jump horses anymore and blah blah so on and so forth. When the girl gets back to her place, it turns out her family looks after these horses for other people. Anyways, for some unknown reason It’s driving me crazy that they don’t mention the name of the movie (if it is even a movie… At this point I’m sure it’s FX’s way of annoying me lol) or give any info whatsoever on it at all. Any help you can give me on solving this mystery would be much appreciated.

    Hi everyone!
    I have been searching the internet all night trying to find a movie I watched when I was very young, maybe 15-18 years ago… I only remember one scene, but even now when I think about it, it breaks my heart. There is a horse and a girl who are obviously very good friends, but are being separated. I don’t remember if it’s the girl on a train, or if the horse is being taken away, but they are together just before it leaves, and the girl is crying and the horse also has tears running down his/her face. I think it was a dark horse… If anyone can help I would really appreciate it!!!
    Thanks!!

    Hi, I am looking for a horse movie, set in the 1900′s. I think it’s from 1960-2000′s.
    It’s about a girl whose runs away, but one day she is the horses paddock, he/she comes cantering back home. The girl then enters competitions and in one, a cross country event, she falls off her horse and badly hurts her arm. When she finish’s the event and jumps from her horse, she collapses. There is also a boy involved, she likes him and he likes her. I think the girl lived with her grandparents. Also, I think the movie was set in Ireland, if not, it was probably England or Scotland.
    Cheers.

    Hi! I’m looking for this movie about a young girl & her elder brother who go horse riding. The brother is thrown off his horse & dies. The mother is totally totally devastated & she neglects the young girl, who is actually dealing with guilt, because she had cajoled her brother to ride with her, though he didn’t really want to. In the end someone tells the mother to realize that she has a young daughter who needs her love & understanding. (I think the daughter plays a violin & the mother makes an effort to bond with her.)
