Best Equestrian (Horse) Music in Film (and Classical)

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Burly Cocks!

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!
