A slideshow of child actresses in classic horse movies, including Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet, Dakota Fanning in Dreamer, Alison Lohman in Flicka, Scarlett Johansson in The Horse Whisperer, and more.

Please look closely at Ride a Wild Pony, the movie at 1:38, because it’s one of my favorite movies ever! For more on this film, visit my website about it at …

    I think it’s ” Max Anus” Ps this film is soo good, I like ponies to, so this is nice! What kind of camera do they use in this film? But this films remind me of Vietnam, the war and all, it is much of the same… I’m a little sad now…

    Anyone know the name of the movie where a girl goes blind but goes to a riding stable (she doesnt want to) and get a horse and learns to ride and goes to a like championship. Where the judges dont know she is blind. She tries a hard jump and makes it too thats after they learn she is blind. I thought it wasw the movie at 2:48 called Flash but i cant find anything.
