Good horse books, tv shows, movies, etc. ?

What are some really good books, tv shows, movies, magazines, and really anything at all that have to do with horses? Preferably for around a 12+ age range, but ages under that would work, so long as they're not directed towards, like, 6 year olds... I think that you can probably understand this :P. thanks :)

    In general Despite Having been horse riding since I was three I am not a fan if the typical horsey stuff. I do not like most books as by the end of every one I have bet read they magically are able too have their own horse! The world does not and never will work that way! Anyway if you have not read black beauty it is a serious crime against animal literature. The author was the first person to write a book about animal welfare. There is a film too by the book is longer. There black stallion book series is good even if he does get the horse at the end. Dreamer is a fantastic film, horse whisperer and... I can't remember its name... Something velvet a about s female jockie.

    Books:

    Canterwood Crest series (kinda girly at times but dramay)

    Heartland series (very good, lots of books but I learned a lot of horsesy stuff)

    Chestnut Hill series (by the same authors of Heartland and just as good)

    TV Shows:

    Heartland (not exactly like the book but pretty good)

    Saddle Club (I don't enjoy the new ones but the older saddle club series was good)

    Movies:

    Secreteriate (even my mom loved this. i think because its a true story its even more amazing)

    Moondance Alexandra (kinda cheezy and probably not as realistic but very dreamy)

    Flicka (any of the movies theres a ton, are good)

    Magazines:

    Horse Illistrated

    Young Rider (very very cool! Love this mag)

    Those are all my things I'd recommend.

    My sister and I love heartland. It is a book series with 20+ books, and a tv series which I believe is in it's 6th season. It's a great show about horses pointed toward a pre-teen/teen audience with lots of info on horses and a little drama/romance wrapped in. I bet you'll love it if you love horses like I do! Hope this helps, enjoy ;)

    Once you read a book you start to see the story the way you want to assume it not what sort of director wants one to see it

    There is also Pony Palls, I use to love those but I don't remember how old I was then.
