The following video will highlight a beloved cinematic masterpiece from the 1980s that has remained popular across generations. While we have disclosed its title in the heading, let’s first delve into the topic of horse cinematography in general, which was more prevalent in previous decades than it is now. The past decade has not produced as many iconic horse scenes as previous ones.
Between the 1970s and the 2000s, numerous movies were produced that have left a lasting impression on audiences. Classics such as “The Black Stallion,” “Hidalgo,” “Flicka,” “Spirit,” and “Casey’s Shadow” are just a few examples among hundreds of successful films that continue to inspire modern equestrians.
It’s astonishing to consider the influence that movies can have on our career choices. Many of us discovered our passions by watching films featuring people engaged in activities we love, and without even realizing it, these on-screen characters became our role models. One such film is undoubtedly “The Man from Snowy River,” a timeless masterpiece that has only grown in popularity over the years.
It’s often said that certain movies are like fine wine – they improve in quality with age. One aspect that gives me hope for the future of the equestrian world is the fact that many children of this generation are still drawn to these classic films. I believe that history will repeat itself, and these movies will continue to serve as sources of inspiration for future generations as well. At least, that’s what I hope for.
The video below features one of the most iconic scenes from the entire movie, in my opinion. While some viewers may have already guessed which scene it is, I won’t spoil it for those watching it for the first time. Take a look and enjoy!
