We Ask the Industry: What’s Your Favorite Horse Movie for COVID-19 Quarantine? Vote in Our Poll
Movies about horses are fairly common, but it takes a very special movie to impress true horse people. So, we asked some of our fellow equestrians what horse movie they’ll be watching during Coronavirus quarantine.
With the future unknown at this point, we wanted to provide some heartwarming and fun equine-related movies for the entire family to enjoy. Some of these films bring back wonderful childhood memories, and we would like to know which horse films are the leading choices among the GoHorseShow community.
Please vote in our poll which includes the top films mentioned by our industry experts. Did we miss any? Let us know.
Lauren Stanley – Seabiscuit is one of my all-time favorite movies. I remember watching that movie as a kid. I would run out to our trampoline and pretend I was Seabiscuit as I raced around the edge on all fours.
Carli Pitts – Spirit – It’s an animated movie about a horse that had never had human contact. No one could ride him until he met his “person” that he would do anything for. Cheesy, but we’ve all had those horses that we had an immediate connection with. This movie always makes me think of them.
Vanessa Froman – Hands down – it’s Secretariat. I watch it at the beginning of every year. I cry and my heart races every time, even though I know what happens. Ugh, I get teary just thinking about that movie. Love it.
Jenn Wheeler – Justin says Jeremiah Johnson even though we don’t get to watch movies because we aren’t quarantined. Of course, we have a job where we still have to work like usual. I would pick Lonesome Dove. Jaycee would definitely pick Spirit.
Whitney Vicars – My favorite for sure is Secretariat. I also really like Seabiscuit and Black Beauty. I watched this one a lot as a kid, Dreamer, and War Horse. Then, I know they aren’t really movies, but I absolutely love watching videos from past World Shows that we’ve collected over the years. It’s so fun to relive the emotions of every ride and to see how things have changed.
Rebecca Bunting – I just watched The Mustang, and it was an amazing movie. It was a great testament to what horses can do for rehabilitation in the prison system. National Velvet with Mickey Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor and War Horse are other great movies to watch.
Blake Carney – Seabiscuit, Secretariat, and when I was little, we had a movie in the house called, Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken and it’s about diving horses during the Depression. I wasn’t even riding horses at that age, but that movie was on a lot in our house.
