TV Shows for Kids Who Love Horses

TV Shows for Kids Who Love Horses

Do you have a little horse lover in the house? When I wa a kid, I devoured every horse-related TV and movie that ever came out. No, really…I have probably seen every horse show and movie released before 1992. Going back to the 50’s, y’all…that’s how serious I am.

Of course, back then, I had to catch episodes of Mr. Ed on Nick at Nite. Now, I feel like everything is available whenever you want to watch it. Which is awesome if you’re a kid!

Here are some fun horse TV shows for kids {updated in April 2020 with some recommendations from my 10-year-old horse crazy niece!}.

I just love the animation – Spirit.
Thanks for sharing with us.

my wife has just completed a book call The Unwanted Pony. It’s a Wonderful story and met for kids 6 to 12. Wonderfully illustrated.
We do not have a Mailing or any marketing tools other than an old large list of horse owners.
After you see the book might you be interested in the marketing rights and take it from here?

Hi there is one programme that I personally think is really good and it is on Netflix. It’s name is Heartland

Free reign! Netflix 🙂

On Youtube you can find all three seasons of the The Silver Brumby about a band of wild horses living in Australia. There’s also on Youtube The Adventures of Unico and Unico in the Island of Magic about a baby unicorn that fights evil.

In the 1960s I LOVED “My Friend Flicka” and “Fury.”

Definitely free rein!

What about My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic ?

Ponysitters on Netflix, Black Beauty, Cowgirls and Angels 1 & 2, Dreamer, American Girl: Saige, As merican Girl: Felicity, Misty, Red Fury, Gift Horse, Adventures of Black Beauty (so many other great shows!)

Looking to find a horse book, movie, toy that are for little BOY. They all seem to be girl related. He’s only 3!!
