I recently had a discussion with some folks about the worst “guilty pleasure” movie you’ve ever seen. For me this is probably almost every horse movie ever made.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some good ones. Seabiscuit is my personal favorite. Black Beauty makes me cry every damn time, and The Black Stallion is an all time classic.
But some movies, oh some movies. How far have they fallen.
The Young Black Stallion
Disney, you should have left this one alone. So the actual movie is okay and features your normal young child + beautiful arabian in beautiful desert setting, but what killed me is the prequel to the movie which they included in the DVD. In case you don’t want to waste 8 minutes of your life, let me just tell you that it involves a lot of The Black’s sire who just so happens to be a magical Friesian from the sky. Yes, a Friesian.
Quirky teen + escaped pinto = champion show hunters. Need I say more? Throw in a snobby rich “rival” and you have the total package. Oh Don Johnson, how far you’ve fallen…
The Princess and the Pony
Folks, I am 28 years old. I can’t believe I watched this. I can’t believe I’m admitting watching this on a public blog.
So there you have it, three of the worst movies I’ve seen… but there sure are more. What’s the worst horse movie you’ve ever seen?
