I was fascinated by this horse Florian....
19 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie Florian many many years ago.I remember my parents had not long bought our first TV. I sat in front of it on the floor watching Robert young saving the horses in ww1 I first learnt that white horses are born black and my heart was racing when i saw the stallions enter the arena to "dance" I loved it very much it is a movie I would love to have. I have over the years made some enquries about the movie and now that i am semi retired i am becoming more persistent in my search for a copy. Does anybody know of a VHS or is it on line anywhere or was it ever released as a VHS?. Ultimate dream is to go and see the dancing stallions.
