Hidalgo - The Real Horse by blitzgun Hidalgo - The Real Horse by blitzgun
FULL VIEW PLEASE

Well, my mom went to see John Fusco with a friend of hers. He's the writer of the movies "Hidalgo" and "Spirit Stallion of the Cimmaron," he owns Hidalgo, the horse. He said I could ride him if I'm ever down! <3 That would be AMAZING to say the least!!

Place taken: John Fusco's stable!


-Thanks For The Posters Mr.Fusco!

I LOVE the movie but Spirit, I must say is better. ><

blitzgun Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009
Plot wise, I think Hidalgo was better. Spirit is more of a kids movie. From what I heard from him, he was concidering making a second Spirit, but the project was quickly discarded. There's just no way to really continue it because of the actual point of the Spirit movie which was not noticed by 95% of all viewers.

Yeah, mention the movie to any one and your chance is, they have never heard of it before.
Hidalgo, I must say, was sad at some points but I loved it all the way ^3^

Such a gorgeous horse and great shot, so cool you got to see him in person. TJ is the main Hidalgo that Viggo bought, while Oscar, another of the paint horses who played Hidalgo, is the one that apparently John Fusco bought. Its got to be amazing working so closely with such gorgeous horses. Did John use to own this horse [link] the one they modeled Spirit from? I really want to see him in person

Yes, he did model Spirit and Rain after Henry and whatever they named Rain.... The only diffence in Rain is, is that she has a brown face and a light brown mane.

I do know that Viggo DID buy Hidalgo (aka. RH Tecontender, aaka. T.J) after the filming of the movie - as he did with Brego (aka. Uraeus), the horse he rode in the LotR trilogy. he said he wanted to continue his relationship with those horses he was so close with during filming.

Nonetheless, you are SO lucky to have met TJ in person!! =O He is absolutely gorgeous, so talented and intelligent.

When was this photo taken, by the way? I'd like to say it's a great photo of the famous horse. =)

First: It's a great photo of a beautiful horse!

and CyinderComics, I just rechecked some Pics of RH Tecontender off-camera, and that's definitely not him.. I guess it's one of the other 2 (?) Hidalgos ;)

I only saw Hidalgo for the first time this year (last month methinks), but I know it was made in 2004...was it released on DVD/video (lol OLD-SCHOOL videos!) in 2005? I didn't see LotR until New Years last/this year either XD Bit slow...meh. :bounce:

This is the actual horse. My mom went to John Fusco's house in Vermont, as in, the writer.. or was it director? My friends are related to them.
I realize several horses played him, but this is in fact the real deal. Did you know he also used to own Spirit (Henery) and Rain (I forget) for "Spirit Stallion Of The Cimmaron" as well? Rain looks different in the movie... sorta.

I'm sorry to dissapoint you, but that's not the real horse.. browse.deviantart.com/photography/nature/?qh=&section=&q=hidalgo#/d16xqqm
As you see, the markings doesn't match.

And the other side;
[link] .. still doesn't match.

And the real-life Spirit is called Donnor..

"Did you know he also used to own Spirit (Henery) and Rain (I forget) for "Spirit Stallion Of The Cimmaron" as well?"

Even though Spirit is a cartoon - do you mean the horses they were modelled off?

blitzgun Featured By Owner May 18, 2008
Uhm... yes. THe fact that their real names (except rain) are on there, thus implying that same thing. xD

CynderComics Featured By Owner May 19, 2008
You mean their names are in the credits? I haven't seen that. Though of course i rarely paid much attention back then (I haven't seen that movie in AGES). I'm gunna have to see it again and look at the credits more carefully. =P

Whos' names? The horses? No. Why would they be, they're animals.

Ah, sometimes they have the names of the animals that act in movies in the credits. I know a fair few that possess the names of animal actors in movie credits - I just can't think of any at this present time. >.<
