The video below will focus on one of the masterpieces of cinematography. This was a very popular movie in the 80s. Many people love these movies; even today’s generation also loves these movies. We already revealed its name in the title, however, we will leave this out for a moment and we will focus on horse cinematography in general. I think it was way more popular decades ago compared to what it is now. The last decade that we left behind didn’t have quite a lot of famous horse moves compared to the decades prior to it.
From the ’70s to ’00s, I have to say that it was quite rich with a lot of movies that will remain in our minds for a long period of time like ‘The Black Stallion’, ‘Hidalgo’, ‘Flicka’, ‘Spirit’, ‘Casey’s Shadow’ and the list goes on, there are hundreds of successful movies and a lot of them are the source of inspiration for a lot of equestrians that we have nowadays.
It is really crazy when we think about the impact that movies have on our professions. We did a lot of things by just watching the movies unexpectedly. One of these movies is definitely ‘The Man from Snowy River’, a timeless movie that gets even better over the years.
It is true that some movies are like wine, the older they get, the more qualitative they become. Something that I really like and makes me optimistic about the future of the horse world is the fact that a lot of children of this generation have shown the interest in such movies and I think the history is going to repeat itself, these movies will not stop being a source of inspiration for the recent and upcoming generations as well, or at least I hope so.
The scene in the video below is one of the most iconic (in my opinion, the most iconic) from the whole movie.
