About this movie

From producer Jean-Jacques Annaud (SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET, THE BEAR) and award-winning director Sergei Bodrov comes the captivating, visually stunning dramatic adventures of RUNNING FREE, in which one courageous horse grows from an awkward colt into a magnificient stallion at the edge of the rugged, inhospitable Skeleton Coast of Namibia.
In 1914, Lucky is born aboard a tempest-tossed German supply steamer transporting his mother and other workhorses to Africa, Torn from her side shortly after arrival and left to fend for himself in a strange and unforgiving environment, the vunerable foal is adopted by an orphaned stable boy, Richard (Chase Moore), in a ming town. When the townspeople must flee due to encroaching war, Lucky is abandoned, bereft of his young companion and caretaker, until a young Bushman girl comes into town and escorts Lucky into the desert. There she helps him learn how to survive in the harsh, untamed wilderness.
Lucky's journey eventually leads him back to the destroyed mining town where he reunites with a young mare, Beauty, whom he first fell in love with as a foal, and undertakes a heroic mission to defeat the domineering stallion Ceasar to become the leader of the herd. © 2000 Global Entertainment Productions GmbH & Co.

I ride and own lots of horses. I have three favorite riding horses, a mustang, a racehorse, and a paso fino. I have a mule too. So of course I love this movie! I am the biggest horse lover in the world. A guy dumped his horses near where I live without food or water! I helped them, fed them, and gave them water. They needed medical attention really bad too. 😩 Poor things. I have a a room that all over the walls is a giant horse collage! When you guys say your the biggest horse fans in the world, I make you look like you hate horses. Don't mean to be mean, just saying, I am THE BIGGEST HORSE FAN AND LOVER IN THE ENTIRE RACE OF HORSE PEOPLE!!!!!!!🐎🐴🐎🐴🐎🐴🐎🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇
