List Criteria: Movies must have horses and equestrian sports.

A list of the best horse movies, especially those that focus on horse racing. We believe we thought of them all, but if you think we missed any of the top horse movies please feel free to add it to the list yourself. All genres of horse films have been included (they are generally inspirational) from the famous to the not so famous. Many of these films are based on real-life horses such as the race-horses Seabiscuit and Secretariat.

What are the best horse movies? Like dogs and even cats, horses have been with man for much of our history. It's no coincidence then that stories about horses and horse racing have been popular for ages. Great horse movies, or even good horse movies, bring us closer to these majestic animals and give us stories of their caretakers. Maybe the horses learn from them, but I think we can all agree that horses have more to teach us than we could ever teach them.
