OK admittedly less serious than my normal posts. But who doesn’t love Disney films?! I am a massive fan! I loved them when I was a child and I still love them now. So I thought I would compose a list of my favourite Disney horse characters. Take a look to see your favourite makes the list.
Frou Frou from Aristocats
Now, Aristocats is one of my absolute favourite Disney films. It is one of the classics and for me that is part of the appeal. The animation is all scratchy and it is based in France! Anyway Frou Frou is a friend of Duchess and the kittens who get kidnapped by their owner’s horrible butler when he realises their rich owner is leaving all of her money to her cats in her will. Frou Frou actually is the one who helps capture Edgar the butler at the end of the film when she kicks him into a trunk heading to Timbucktu!
Phillipe from Beauty and the Beast.
Phillipe is the horse Belle rides up to the beast’s castle and when she escapes from the beast. He is kind and sweet and he tries to look after Belle. He also warms to the beast when he shows his softer side to Belle. Another one based in France!
The only horse that has his own Disney film! Spirit is a wild mustang that gets captured by the US Army, when he becomes friends with a native American Little Creek. Spirit is refusing to be ridden or broken in by anyone. Little Creek helps Spirit escape and they flee to his village. Spirit and Little Creek save each other when their village is attacked. Spirit finally lets Little Creek ride him but at the end Little Creek decides to set him free as that is what Spirit truly wants. Sob!
Maximus from Tangled
Maximus is more like a big dog than a white stallion but he is very funny! He is arch enemies with Flynn Ryder but he later becomes his best friend to help Rapunzal return to her family.
Bulls Eye from Toy Story 2
Bull Eye is Woody’s horse in Toy Story 2. He is a horse but acts like an excitable puppy as he has been in storage for years. He loves Jessie & Woody & he is part of Woody’s round up gang. He helps Woody and Buzz rescue Jessie by running as fast a plane when they escape from Stinky Pete.
Sitron from Frozen.
Sitron is Hans’ horse and side kick. He holds the boat steady when Hans and Ana first met and is ridden by Hans up to Elsa’s castle. I just love his mane!!
Do you have a favourite? Is it on the list? Let me know in the comments!
