O.K. for those of you who are snowed out of riding...My husband rented a
pretty good movie for Arab riders last night.

It was called "The Wind and the Lion".  It was about a true story in 1904
when a Berber Chieftain kidnapped an American woman and her children and
Teddy Roosevelt sent the Marines to Morocco.  Stars Sean Connery, Candice
Bergen and Brian Keith. 

LOTS of distance type horses galloping around with fellows in turbans. 
For some reason, every time someone shoots a rider with a pistol, the
horse immediately does a face plant / flip.  But they were still
interesting to watch.

I believe it was filmed on location in Spain.  Would that make these
horses Barbs?  Their heads were a little plain, and they didn't quite
have the hindquarters our horses have, but nice.  Donna Snyder Smith
would have a fit over the high heads and hollow backs.

My daughters were amazed at the sight of 100 Desert horses charging, and
continuing on through cannon fire.  I have a feeling they just couldn't
get the darned things stopped.
