What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dark Horse is a Welsh documentary that tells the inspiring story of a group of mostly poor mineworkers who pooled 10 pounds per week to successfully breed, train, and race a thoroughbred horse, inserting themselves into a realm ordinarily reserved for the wealthy and titled. Adults are seen drinking alcohol in many pub scenes, and a few scenes could be upsetting to sensitive animal lovers -- horses and jockeys fall during races, and there's discussion of putting injured animals down. But ultimately this is a celebration of perseverance and the triumph of the underdog.
