Looking for movies with, about, by, or for horses.

So I'm seeing this Totally Awesome Guy and it's great. TAG loves movies. TAG loves horses. Help me find the best intersections of these two things?

What I'm looking for is pretty simple, I think? I'd like to surprise him with some movies and/or TV shows that involve horses somehow. Here's what I'm looking for:
1) Hopefully something we'd both like--our tastes have aligned on: A Fish Called Wanda, LOTR, Safe House, Spaceballs, Jurassic Park, The Warrior, GOT, and he also likes some pretty fluffy stuff (Think Lindsay Lohan, Legally Blonde, those sorts of films). I'm fine though if it's something he'll really like, so throw out any ideas you have.
2) That feature horses. Can be anything from a really good documentary to just really great examples of horsemanship on screen, to movies specifically dealing with subjects equine. Westerns might be iffy unless the horses and ridership are awesome, and TV shows are great too.
3) And aren't: Seabiscuit, War Horse, Black Beauty, The Black Stallion, Equus, or Inter/National Velvet; already owned or on the list. Also not that show on HBO or wherever about racing that was cancelled recently. They mistreated the horses.
Bonus points for not very (or at all) scary/gory.
