First off, there was The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit. A Disney comedy, it's a really cute movie about a man who builds an aspirin sales campaign around his daughter's show jumper.
There was also Sylvester, which I probably watched hundreds of times. Starring Melissa Gilbert, it's about an orphaned Texan girl who believes in herself and her battered horse, going all the way to a National Equestrian competition.
Other really great horse movies included Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken and of course National Velvet.
And, to toss in a movie that wasn't all horsey, I just loved The Three Lives of Thomasina. Another cute, sweet classic Disney comedy.

I don't think I ever saw Disney's The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit. I'm sure it's a good one. I may have to see if it's on Netflix.
Sylvester! That's another good one I used to watch.
I must have been missing out because I don't know any of those movies! :)
I have never heard of any of these movies! I was a poor deprived child who grew up without a VCR so I guess I missed out on a lot of good movies!
Add me to the list who hasn't heard of any of these!
I do not recall if I have seen The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit or not - I am sure it was probably played on movie day at the academy I had attended in elementary school. They played all sorts of Disney films like Hot Lead, Cold Feet; Snowball Express; and the Apple Dumpling Gang. Of course they may have just had a thing for Dean Jones and Don Knotts =)
Internet monkeys ate my first comment. I probably have seen the 2 Disney films even if I don't remember, because the academy I attended in elementary school had movie days - and they were always Disney films.
Go get International Velvet!! Netflix doesn't have it, but I think Blockbuster.com does, and perhaps your local Blockbuster (or whatever your local video store is). If you enjoy Sylvester, you should enjoy International Velvet!
I haven't heard of these, either! I have to get a movie post up (probably tomorrow, hope Memory Lane Saturday is OK!) ;)
OMG, I loved Sylvestor! I actually just got in on netflix a couple of months ago and made my poor husband watch it
