Horse racing is one of the most spectacular sports events. During the main tournaments, thousands of fans bet and see results here. Except for these events, horse lovers also enjoy watching TV series with these amusing animals. Here are the best of them.

The Adventures of Black Beauty
The basis for the script of the series was the famous book by Anna Sewell, but the plot is very different from her book. Except that the main character is also named Black Beauty.
Dr. Gordon, along with his children, Vicky and Kevin, moves from London to the countryside. There they make the acquaintance of a raven-haired handsome horse, which the owner gives to the Gordons after a service rendered. From that moment the adventure begins. Each series is a separate story, and these stories can be romantic, adventurous or domestic, but always instructive. And, of course, related to the relationship between people and animals. Special mention should be made of the terrific backdrop and music by Dennis King.
In the 1990s, there was a sequel to the series. The New Adventures of Black Beauty moved the action to Australia. However, the sequel is strongly inferior to the first part. So, it did not have the expected success with the public.
