The Best Horses In Screen/TV History


Steven Spielberg’s War Horse (above) is about to trot into theaters, and lordy is that a beautiful creature!

I like the horse, too.

Anyway, here are some of my other favorite equine stars from Hollywood history.

But don’t anyone mention Equus, if you don’t mind.

That overwrought, pretentiously boring movie smells like a stable!

To paraphrase Ruth Roman in the cult classic The Baby, it’s just so much horseshit.

Oh, all right, here it is. But get it to the glue factory pronto.
