Three horses born on the same night go on to lead very different lives (one becomes a racehorse, another does stunts, and the third joins a herd of wild horses) in this portrait of equines and their effect on the human spirit. Narrated by award-winning actor Gabriel Byrne. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You don't have to be a horse lover to appreciate Horses. But after watching this docudrama, it's easy to understand how people become horse lovers."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"[S]tagy and preposterous scenes outnumber the well crafted moments."
‑ Herb Lash, Big Movie Zone
"Enjoyment of Horses will be proportional to how in touch we are with that teenage girl inside, delightedly reading My Friend Flicka for the umpteenth time."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"The two contrived accidents aside, the tale feels true, warm-hearted and told with love and care for the animal."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Horses covers a lot of ground, some worthy and some not, but it is best when it's reminding us that horses are at their most beautiful when they're doing what they want to do, which is to run like the wind."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Blending the imperatives of adventure, drama, nature and wildlife film, large-format veteran Michael Caulfield makes a solid fist of this modestly conceived but handsomely produced, FFC-funded IMAX film."
