Pelennor Fields, Theoden Rides Forth, Valkyries, Wilhelm Tell, Tuareg Attack, Desert Chase (from IJ01), etc.
But let me share these:
In general I would say that the best equestrian music is in 6/8, because it is the most healthy rhytm for the horses.
Now where did I put my betting slip? I saw Carl Davis conduct the main theme for Champions in a concert with the Philharmonia three or four years back and it was ace! They also played the Grand National cue from the same score.
Nice thread. I cannot find the Reivers Suite on youtube, but the horse race section from that.
Another personal favorite:
Danny Elfman's BLACK BEAUTY might very well be my favourite of them all. I won't bother with Youtube clips, I'm more interested in whole albums.
Not sure if it really counts, but this is a horse and stage coach chase from For A Few Dollars More.
Il Vizio Di Ucidere
Also a fun little Carter Burwell cue from Hail, Caesar!.
When Hobie rides Whitey, a white horse.
In this movie, a white man teaches a bunch of arabs how to ride their horses. Everyone says he's a fool to even try to ride against them. He says "You're on...but whoever wins the race, also wins the princess as his bride" and the race begins. Ok, I never saw the film, but great music!
There's a plethora of The Lord of the Rings cues that meet the requirements.
See Forth Eorlingas, The Riders of Rohan, Hope and Memory, Flight to the Ford and many more.
