Many films focus on the unlikely bond that forms between man and beast. From Jesse and Willy from Free Willy to Hiccup and Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon, we’ll examine five of our favorite animal and human friendships in the films of yesterday and today.

When Toby (Clint Black) takes on a job at a stable with Flicka in tow, the owner’s teenage daughter Kelly (Kacey Rohl), quickly bonds with the wild horse. A budding equestrian rider, she hopes to break Flicka for an upcoming competition, despite her mother’s (Lisa Hartman Black) disapproval. With the competition approaching, a rival trainer stealing business, and a growing fear they may be forced to sell the stable, Toby steps in to turn things around for Kelly and her mother.
