The most famous horses in the history of cinema


The horse is an animal that in human history has played a very important role in many respects. Therefore even in movies, especially in recent years, there has been no shortage of equine protagonists in many films, some of which are animated, which we are ready to bet, perhaps with a TVG Promo Code, you already know. We are now offering you this interesting list.

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

This list can only begin with the protagonist of this 2002 film produced by DreamWorks Animation, which also received a nomination at the 2003 Oscars for best animated film. Set in the mid-nineteenth century United States of America, Spirit is an adventure not to be missed by anyone.

Joey – War Horse
Love, good feelings and tears of emotion: nothing is missing in this long and beautiful film by Steven Spielberg, where the main character of the Great War is Joey, a beautiful horse. Based on the novel by the same name written by Michael Morpurgo and the theatrical adaptation of the novel by Nick Stafford, War Horse has also received six nominations for the 2012 Oscars.


Hidalgo is a 2004 film directed by Joe Johnston. The film tells the story of Frank Hopkins and his Appaloosa Hidalgo racehorse, characters that really existed. Set in 1897, Hidalgo tells of a horse race that has been held for centuries in Arabia, the Ocean of Fire, so called because it requires traveling a distance of three thousand miles along the desert.

Seabiscuit is not only a film for  horseracing enthusiasts and horse lovers, but also a cross-section of American history. In 1930s America, it was a legend, a sort of collective mania. The film, directed by Gary Rosso, is based on the 2001 book Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. The story of Seabiscuit restores courage and hope to the American people, who were strongly afflicted by poverty. The horse that no one wanted and with many defects became the most paid, loved and honored champion of all time.

Pilgrim – The Horse Whisperer
Pilgrim is the leading role, along with an extraordinary Robert Redford, protagonist and director of this adaptation of the homonymous novel by Nicholas Evans, of a film that became history right from the beginning. The Horse Whisperer can also be considered the first film in which the theme of observing the horse behavior and the recovery of problematic equine subjects, after traumatic events, is addressed.

Shadowfax – The Lord of The Rings
The famous and beautiful white horse of Gandalf, from the literary and cinematographic saga of The Lord of The Rings. No man could ride Shadowfax. The latter, in fact, did not tolerate bridles and saddles, and only carried Gandalf, by his choice, who always rode him bareback.

Bullseye – ToystoryBullseye, like many characters in the highly successful series by Pixar, is a toy, like its owner Woody. Despite being a horse, its behavior is very reminiscent of that of a dog: he wags when it’s happy, he gets in trouble when he’s sad or hurts and has a sense of smell developed to track down people, animals or things. Bullseye is also the only animal toy that does not speak.
