Okay so being a horseperson myself I was curious about the horses used in King Arthur (2004) and did a bit of research. This is an excerpt from ‘Hollywood Hoofbeats’ by Petrine Day Mitchum and Audrey Pavia. 

Just thought I’d share in case anyone else would like to know the genders/breeds of the horses that the knights rode, whether for just trivia or for creative/fanfic-writing purposes.

We’re too celebratory of civil rights these days. We have these 50th anniversaries and everyone is happy and everybody is celebrating. Nobody is talking about the hardship.

It’s almost as if the civil rights movement was this three-day event: On Day 1, Rosa Parks didn’t give up her seat on the bus. On Day 2, [the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.] led a march on Washington. And on the third day, we signed all of these laws. And if you think about that history in that way, you minimize the trauma, the damage, the divides that were created. You can’t segregate and humiliate people decade after decade without creating long-lasting injuries.
