THE TATTOOED POLICE HORSE (1964)

Did you know there is such a thing at trotting horse races? Yeah, we didn’t either until this made for TV movie. It’s about a horse who just wants to gallop and so he keeps breaking his stride in the trotting races. So he gets sold a couple times and eventually ends up as a police horse in Boston. This movie, however, was slower than watching a race that only consists of trotting horses. It was pretty boring and although I did care about the horse, I felt like, what is it that makes the horse happy? Because I thought that he wanted to be fast, but then, in the end, he ends up back at the trotting races. What? Why not just put him in the regular races? Whatever. He seemed happy as a police horse to me.
