Watch a Horse Expert Review Horse Movies
In Vulture’s video series, Expert Witness, we ask scientists, historians, and other professionals to give Hollywood movies a good old-fashioned fact-check.
Horse movies are a lot like dog movies: They usually make you cry, and sometimes they get animal facts wrong. We can’t help with the first part, but we can ask horse expert and stable owner Scott Tarter to watch and review some equine entertainment. Content warning: We definitely show the scene from The Neverending Story where Artax gets stuck in the Swamp of Sadness.
