With the Boxing Day release of War Horse into Australian cinemas, I thought it was appropriate to compile a list of the best horse movies of all time and get your views on the topic. I’ve yet to watch War Horse, I saw the preview and instantly burst into tears when Albert the teenage boy is told that the horse Joey is being sent to war. I have a track record of crying hysterically when watching equine movies.
Here is a list of some of the best horse movies of all time – in no particular order.
4. Sea Biscuit
5. Black Beauty
11. Running Free
Be warned: crying, snivelling, bawling & howling is guaranteed in all of these horse movies.
Are there any horse movies I’ve missed?
