Horses in Wolfman

Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, "The Wolfman" brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Oscar® winner Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself.

The Horse were breathtaking in the film. Mostly Drafts, and Emily Blunt rides a Grey Andalusian, and I might add she rides it quite spectacular. It is obviously that is is winter, due to the fact that every single horse has a thick winter coat.

There were a couple of Friesians. Actor Hugo Weaving rides a pretty small black Friesian, but had a pretty gate. There is a scene where he rides in a full out gallop through the woods after Emily Blunts character who is riding a gorgeous grey Andalusian. Emily completely impressed my with her riding ability. At one point in the scene she rides into camera then crosses out, and this beautiful Spanish horse prances the whole time. It was a great shot!

I was really disappointed in Benicio Del Toro, he was horrible at riding, he was just all over the place. Other then that the horses were casted great and they looked great. Tons of carriages and old English Tack. Great Horse film.
