Still shot from the movie: Seabiscuit.


A belief in second chances is the reason Charles Howard (Jeff Bridges), a business man with a turbulent past, agrees to invests in a gangly horse named Seabiscuit, who is trained by an out-of-work mustang breaker (Chris Cooper) and ridden by an oversized former boxer with a blinded eye (Tobey Maguire). Based on a true story, this team of misfits gives a reason to hope to an entire nation facing The Great Depression. Get the movie review and more. »

Virginia’s Run, the story about a teenaged girl and her horse, offers a racing story aimed at younger equestrians. Jeff Bridges plays an entrepreneur who dreams of revolutionizing the car industry in Tucker: The Man and His Dream. Before losing 25 pounds for his role as a jockey, Tobey Maguire bulked up to take on the role of a superhero in Spider-Man. Leaving the horses behind, Chris Cooper takes a part in October Sky, a story about students whose love of rockets gives them the boost they need to pursue a different future than what they’ll find in their mining town.
