Dark Horse (1992)



Reviews and Comments

Dark Horse follows formula that will be very familiar to lovers of equine movies. The troubled new girl in town finds a place in life when she starts work at a stable. She comes to love horses, and one in particular. She and/or the horse will suffer an accident, which will prove to be a blessing in disguise.

It's easy to be dismissive of formula like this, but the reason the formula exists in the first place is because, when done right, it works. And it works here, thanks to the gentleness and compassion the film has toward its characters. This won't be for everyone, but if you like horses or the sorts of movies the Hallmark shows, check this out.
