    1. Pam

      I have the video “King of the wind”, check on ebay as one may eventually show up. Thats where I found a copy. Good luck.

  1. Sofie

    First: methinks you are doing a wonderful job with these lists – these movies have spared me many a boring evening this winter. ^^

    But of course I’m missing one of my absolute favourites. Namely; Into the West (1992).
    It’s about two boys in Dublin who recieve a white horse from their grandfather. At first they keep it in their flat.. but soon enough they set out on an adventure. Returning to the mythical land of Tir Na Nog.
    The swedish title was “The horse from the sea” or something suchlike. Add it! XD

  2. Lucy

    When i was a kid a use to hire a VHS i cant remeber the name but can remeber the main story line if you know it i would love to find it. It is about a teen girl who heards brubys to a new grasing area that is in a national park. would be great if you could help me out.
    thankyou :)

    1. Tracy

      The movie is called Wild Horse Hank. Her horse gets loose and ends up at a lot where wild horses are being held for slaughter. She gets her horse back and releases all the horses and takes them to safety

  3. Fionn

    Your Shergar quote is poor. He WAS NOT an IRA horse!
    The IMDB movie description is better. Shergar is based on the true story of a champion race horse, abducted by IRA terrorists, then rescued by an orphaned boy.

    Nevertheless, this movie is still divorced from reality as Shergar was never rescued, and never found.

  4. Colin

    I’m wondering if someone can help me identify this horse movie… It’s about this boy whose dad is over seas fighting in the military or something, and he’s left with this young colt.

    For some reason, this boy and the colt have to travel across the United States together performing in shows and performances in order to make money for the trip home.

    I don’t remember any of the actors that were in the movie, and I haven’t been able to find the name of it anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Kadi

      Hei Colin

      Movie is called Flash (1997 or 1998)
      Been trying to download it myself but havent found any place yet :(

  5. Hannah

    1. Paige Post author

      You are absolutely right ghdksky, Hot to Trot was made in ’88. My mistake and I’ve added it to the 80’s page where it belongs.

  7. Felice

    I am still waiting for so,many of the Disney movies to be released. I especially want the Horse With The High Flying Tail. The tattooed Police horse and there was another movie about a poor boy in Puerto Rico, I think, and his love of a neighbors Paso Fino? Does anyone know the title and more importantly where to get any of these?

  8. Kasii

    I am looking for a movie that I saw when I was young. It could have been produced in the 80’s or 90’s. First off, it is NOT the Horse Whisperer. I don’t remember the whole movie, but I remember part of the beginning. The plot is about a girl who travelled to a horse show (hunter/jumper I believe) with one parent (can’t remember exactly if it was the mother or father), but one didn’t go to the show and the other did, but I think it may have been they wanted to skip that show because of bad weather. If I remember correctly, the girl was disapointed that the one parent didn’t show. Anyways, it starts to storm on their way home and a boulder breaks loose from a cliff wall, and the parent driving swerves to avoid the boulder. This caused the horse trailer to jackknife and hang precariously on the edge of the cliff on the other side of the road. The girl climes into the trailer to try and calm her horse, but the trailers balance is thrown off and it goes tumbling down the cliff. If I remember correctly, the horse did not survive and maybe not the parent either, but I definitely remember the girl did and she spent time in the hospital. When she gets home, she is so emotionally hurt she ripps all her horse ribbons, posters, etc. off the walls, and takes her trophys and horse models and throws it all away. She leaves nothing to remind her of horses. Somehow, later in the movie, she ends up back at the barn and befriends an injured horse that is hanging in a special sling to help reduce the weight lode on the legs. They end up helping each other heal physically and emotionally together.

    Does anybody else remember seeing this movie? I have been searching for it for years, but can’t remember the tital which would greatly help my search. Please email me at bridlesnroses@hotmail.com with any titles. Thank you for any help in advance.

    1. Lora


      I believe the title of the movie you are looking for is called: “Dark Horse” 1992.


      A truck is pulling the horse trailer. The driver looses control of the truck and the horse trailer rolls down a hill, but there is no storm.

      Both the horse and girl end up with broken legs, but the horse does not die. Horse survives, but is in critical condition.

      The girl is in a wheelchair with casts placed on each leg, while the horse is attached to a sling set up in the barn.

      The girl looks out her bedroom window towards the barn and longs to be with the horse, but can no longer walk. This is when the girl rips all of her horse ribbons, posters, etc. off the walls, and takes her trophies and horse models and throws it all away. She leaves nothing to remind her of horses.

      Father comes into her bedroom and is angry that the girl is not trying to do physical therapy. Her bones are beginning to set. If she does not start physical therapy soon she will never walk again.

      The girl looks out her bedroom window and sees the family farm tracker (without driver) crash into barn were horse is. She wobbles outside and into barn to find horse alive, but down. She talks to the horse, encouraging it to walk. With the girl holding onto the lead rope, the horse stands up, pulling girl to her feet, and dragging her from the barn. Horse is healed from its injuries and can walk/run again. This gives hope and encouragement for the girl to make a full recovery too. At end of movie, both horse and girl can walk/ride again.

  11. Lora

    “The Last Winter” 1990 starring Gerard Parkes as Grampa Jack, Joshua Murry as William Jamison, David Ferry as Ross Jamison, and Wanda Cannon as Audrey Jamison has a beautiful white horse in it.

    A warm, humorous and inspiring feature film, tells the story of a young man’s struggle to keep his world from changing. Placed in the rural setting of the mid-1950’s, it revolves around William Jamison and his colorful old Grampa Jack. Since Will was born they have shared the same bed and often the same dreams. William is a boy of great imagination who stumbles between fantasy and reality and who, with the gentle guidance of Grampa Jack, discovers they can be one in the same.

    The family farm, on a rolling piece of spacious countryside is William’s favorite spot on the face of the earth. He is devastated to learn of this family’s decision to move to the city, far away from his friends and the love of his life, his cousin Kate. He revolts at the threat of being uprooted and desperately fights to hold on to the only life he has known…childhood.

    “The Last Winter” is a family adventure and acclaimed award winner about innocence, hope, family, and change.

    Hey! Need help! I saw a movie when I was a kid. I think it was foreign made. I thought it was called the Wrangler but I have looked everywhere and can’t find it. I remember it is about an Australian girl whos family has fallen on hard times and sells their black stallion (Barbicon) to an American (can not remember who played him but he had the bluest eyes and dark hair) she hates him but ends up realizing that he is trying to help her family and the horses. There was some kind of showdown at the end because she had a deal with the army to supply horses and he helped her do it. It was not Man from Snowy River or Return to Snowy river. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me the answer if you know it. kca1223@yahoo.com Thanks a lot!!!!

  17. Murdock

  18. Nicole

    Hey! I have been looking for years for this movie and i remember it clearly but cant seem to find it anywhere! Or the name.

    A younge boy wants this horse realy bad and his father surprises him and buys the horse. The boy creates a strong bond with the horse when his dad has to go across the states for work. So the boy stays with his grandma when she dies he runs away to keep his horse when he runs into a farm that boards horses. He sells his horse to them to get work and food and stuff as long as he can see his horse. When he is the only one able to touch the horse the people that bought him are going to shoot the horse so the boy once again runs away on his horse. At this point he has cops looking for him. He rides across many states when his horse gets hurt and he leaves it with this wise old man(i think hes old) who takes care of his horse. Then the boy finds his father at work and he goes back to get his horse. Alll ends well.

    I LOVE this movie! If anyone can find it you will get loads of thanks from me!

  19. Ruth

    I have looked a long time to find this horse movie. It was on tv once and is about a boy who rides across America to race in the Derby. It was such a great movie I thought, but I have never seen anything about it before or since.

  20. Adeera

    Hey im pretty sure this movie came out in the 90’s but i dont see it here. i cant remember the name for my life but the plot is a mother and her daughter move from home to a ranch. the mother is a dressage rider. She owns a black dressage horse. somehow the horse becomes blind so it cant be used anymore. she keeps him anyway and gets a chestnut. A rival rider injures the chestnut right before a big show and the mother is forced to use the blind horse and it turns out really well. Has anyone seen that before and knows what it is called?

  21. Vicky

    I’m trying to find a movie about a horse called ‘Kytech’ (or something very similar). It was on TV in the mid 90’s. I think it was a black horse that had been stolen or sold to ‘baddies’, and there were a couple of kids trying to rescue it. Any ideas?

  22. kitten

    Can someone help me find a movie with a fresian/andalusian horse named Kaia-that’s about all I remember from the movie, late 80’s early 90s i think.

  23. kitten

    Also trying to find a movie about 2 girls competing, one of the horses was named Steele, the girl who owns him does not warm up, and the horse gets injured.

  24. Dorothy

    There was a movie that I watched once about a boy who gets in a car accident which puts him in a wheelchair and his father, a rancher determines that he will ride again. I want to say it had Dennis Quaid in it but I could be wrong. Anyway the boy gets in the accident because he is riding on the back of the truck while the dad is driving. This is pretty vague but that’s all I really remember.

  25. kate

    I’m searching for a horse film – 1980’s-1990’s, but don’t remember the name. The story is about a boy and a black horse (I thought it was Black Beauty but the stories seem different). The horse is wild and hard to train. Somehow, the boy and the horse are on a large ship that sinks. The boy and horse are stranded on the island. The part I remember most is the part where the boy and the horse become friends and the boy is able to ride the horse. The cinemaphotography is incredible. They live on this island alone, until they are saved. Then the horse is given/sold to people who train it to race. The boy gets the horse back, somehow, but I don’t remember the rest of the story, only the scenery on the deserted island. Any help would be appreciated.

  26. kate

    well, I found the film. It’s called “The Black Stallion”, directed by Francis Ford Corpola in 1979. Rent it – it is fantastic!!

  28. Margaret

    I am looking for a movie I saw when I was younger. It is about a bunch of deliquent kids who go to a horse ranch for a summer to learn a good work ethic instead of going to juvie or jail or whatever. They come from all different kinds of backgrounds, but learn to take care of the horses and the farm while there that summer. There was one scene where the friends of one of the kids tries to steal horse drugs from the farm under the boy’s watch, but they get caught. It is a great movie and I only saw it the one time and cannot remember much about it except for what a great movie it was. If anyone knows the one I’m talking about, let me know. Thanks!

      I think you are looking for Horse Sense. IT was a Disney movie with the Lawrence brothers in it.

      As Michael drives both himself and Tommy to Disneyland, he receives a call from his girlfriend, Gina, who is a drama queen and a snob. Gina asks Michael to come to the local racetrack, where she would introduce him to her father, who he had not met previously. Michael agrees, and drops Tommy off at a nearby Kiddie Zone so that he could go to the racetrack. On the way to pick Tommy up, Michael is involved in a minor car accident and gives the wrong information to the victim, Diedre White. When Michael finally arrives back at the Kiddie Zone to get Tommy, he learns from an employee that Tommy had already been picked up by Arlene. When Michael returns home, he and Tommy get into an argument. Tommy leaves the following morning, stating that if Michael ever comes to Montana, he’d like to “return the favor.” Tommy’s mother later calls Michael’s parents to inform them of how rude Michael was to Tommy during his stay. Michael’s parents then decide to punish him by sending him to his aunt Jules ranch in Montana to work for free for a month. His parents also add that if they hear any negative reports from Tommy or Jules, they won’t allow Michael to go on his trip to the French Riviera with Gina.
      When Michael arrives at the ranch, Tommy begins to exact his revenge by giving Michael complicated tasks to complete, most of which Tommy seems to know Michael will mess up in some way. After spending some time at the ranch, Michael learns that the ranch is going to be foreclosed on at the end of the month. Michael and Tommy decide that they must put their differences aside and work together in order to save the ranch from foreclosure.
      In the end, Michael, having studied the concept of land trusts in college, realizes that since his aunt’s ranch cares for wild horses, it’s eligible to be overseen by the state government and shielded against repossession. Michael also learns a valuable lesson about loyalty and love, which proves to be one of the central aspects of the movie.

    I am also looking for a movie. I almost think Running Free is it, only cause I recognize certain things of it, but I have watched so many horse movies its hard to tell. Anyways the movie would have been between 1990 and 2010 (I say that to be on the safe side) The only part that I can really remember is this grey/white mare with her brown or black foal. They were either on a ship that was shipwrecked or separated from humans some how. Anyways the mare with her foal wander into an area with either crumbled house(s) or a house that isnt very well put together. She goes to a tank to get a drink when this black stallion (a Fresian I believe and I am sure she was Arabian)appears and tries to claim her. Since she wont leave her foal he attacks her. I dont think she was killed or any serious injuries and I remember the tank was in this corral so she starts doing laps around it with her foal while he is bucking away in the center (showing off) and I remember that at least this part of the movie was in a desert, but thats all of the movie I can remember. Please help!! I want to see this again.

    Im looking for a movie about a man or a young man who came home from being estranged from his family because he either sold his fathers horses or lost them. He was away working trying to save up the money to repay his father. He reconnects with a girl from town and realizes that he has a son, his mother is sick, a flood comes and takes the house away with his mother in the house, in the end it shows all of them rebuilding the house. I think it’s from the 80’s to 90’s I think. I would like to find the name of this movie. Any help thanks.

    I am looking for a movie from the 80’s or early 90’s. A teen boy and his mom move west (maybe to Arizona, definitely the desert) in a u-haul. They move to a ranch where they encounter a wild horse. The son finally catches him and learns to ride him. I feel like he has an Irish name and goes to the high school in a near town. That’s about all I can remember. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

    I’m trying to find a horse movie, made in 90’s I think. One of the main characters is called Fenella, a young and “loose” show jumper from wealthy backgrounds. I believe the movie is based on the Horse murder -scandal in the early 90’s (the “Sandman case”) and/or possibly the book called “Hot Blood”. In general the movie is about show jumping scene and the rich people in it. I read about the film from a Finnish horse magazine called “Pegasos” almost 20 years ago.

    Do you by any chance happen to know, what is the film called?

  44. Michelle

    Yes Sorry don’t know any of the movies described in previous comments/questions again sorry. I am asking if anyone remembers of another horse movie I only remember some of the movie. Desciption: They were in the desert either in the middleeast or arizon either way it is set in the era of around the first planes and the town is all made of wood and the people leave the horses locked in a corral thinking they would just die but another or all the horses come together and break free of the corral and earlier in the movie a boy is sad he has to leave a colt of his with the other horses and when he comes back as an adult he sees what happened to town and he sees a colt that looks exactly like his colt and he follows it and they come across the herd of horses that survived and find his colt is the herd leader and the grown colt defends the young colt and then they realise they know each other and then the man leaves in the plan he came in on and then the movie ends, because he realized his childhood friend is fine and doesn’t need him anymore. I saw this movie between 1997-2005 not exactly sure this is all I remember again sorry. =)

    I have found a tiny mistake. The movie you listed above as Dark Horse (1992), that movie and description should be where the 2008 movies are as thats when Dark Horse was realsed. The Dark Horse for 1992 is a movie where Allison, new in town, hates it and her new school. When she hangs with the wrong guy, and get into trouble, she is given community service at a horse stable. She comes to love being with the horses, until an auto accident cripples her and her favorite horse. Sorry, I just had to point this out.

    I have failed to find the title of a movie from Lilongwe ago. A very young girl (5-6?), living on a ranch, can communicate with a white pony stallion leading a band of mares. Her father (or uncle) tries to catch the stallion. Two scenes stand out in my mind: 1) During the roundup and branding, the father tells the little girl, who is very upset about it, that branding does not hurt the calves so she picks up the branding iron and starts to brand herself. The father stops her just in time and she says but you said it doesn’t hurt, did you lie to me? 2) the girl tells the father that the white stallion will come in on his own if he promises some things, one of which is to never brand him.
    At one point in the story, the child goes into a semi-coma from the anxiety of the pony being hunted down by the father.
    I have gone over each movie from every year posted as well as all the comments and have not found any reference to this tale.
    I saw the writeup on a movie titled “THE WHITE PONY” but this is nowhere near the storyline.

    Like a lot of you, I’m also trying to find the name of a movie I watched years and years ago…This is what I can remember.

    I think it was made in the ’90s. It involved a woman disguising herself as a man (well, really I think she just put the helmet on and goggles) and to go in a horse race (she, or course, wins). I THINK there was something about her falling for the guy who trains the horse or something?

    I feel like it wasn’t a very well-known film because I’ve been online looking for HOURS, and all the extensive lists don’t seem to have it!

    Help! I’M GOING CRAZY!!

  49. Nikki

    I’m trying to find this movie that was made sometime in the 90’s i think.
    It’s about a girl who was sent to her aunts for the summer. One day a black stallion was brought in and know one could train her but the girl. She meets this boy who helps train the stallion but then someone tried to steal the stallion so she hid the horse in the mountains. On the day of these races she brought the horse back and raced it.
    Its not any of the flicka’s.

    There’s a movie I cannot put my finger on the title nor the year; but it’s about a girl who loses her pony (like a sorrel/chestnut) with yellowish/grey-white mane. For I believe it ran away or something. It comes across this boy in a wheelchair and they claim him. The significant part I loved at the end is when they’re at a fair and the pony must decide whome he loves the most. Which he chose the handicapped boy but at the end went to the girl to show he cares some, but back to the boy. In the end, you see the boy and girl riding the pony together in a buggy.

    I am looking for a movie I watched when I was 5-7 years old in the mid 90’s. The movie was about a girl who lived in the city and raced her bicycle and repeatedly got in trouble or in accidents. After a close call her mothers sends her to live with her aunt I believe on her ranch. This girl slowly makes the city to country change and ends up helping with chores and horses. There is on horse that she gets attached to and the trainer (which I think was one of the “bad guys”) was going to sell him or send him to the slaughter or something like that. The girl and a Indian man who worked at the ranch steal the horse and take him to a hidden arena where they train him to run barrels. At the end of the movie they take him to the Invitational where i believe they had to compete in two or three events. If I remember correctly, they end up winning and everyone ends up happy.

    Thank you for your help! My Meme recorded this on VHS when I was little and now I can’t find it!

    Omg. I’ve spent an hour googling and trying to remember the cast and title of the very bad movie Simpatico. Thank you so much, what a relief!

    This will be a long shot, but I watched this movie (years ago) that was in a different language. (cannot remember which, just remember reading the subtitles to it.) From what I remember, a black stallion is imported for some rich/royal person. I cannot remember if the horse was too uncontrollable, or if the person just did not want this horse anymore, but it was a secretive deal, so he decided that he wanted the horse put down instead. This girl barges in at the last second before the black stallion is given the shot to be put down. She takes off, and ends up hiding this horse in an abandoned house/shack area and cares secretly for it everyday. However, her best friends ends up betraying her and the location of where she is hiding the stallion is found out. She is chased by a helicopter, who aim to shoot down the horse she is on. However, her boyfriend? arrives in a car just as the black horse falls/she falls off, with the media, so the horse is not shot.
