March 31, 2017 – The most spectacular scenes in the live-action remake of Disney's Beauty and the Beast feature stunning horses and a variety of carriages. There are many breeds and crossbreds represented and each horse is turned out to perfection. Emma Waton as the heroine, Belle, rides the svelte white Philippe, and Luke Evans as the villain, Gaston, rides the black Magnifique.

Philippe, Magnifique and the other horses in the movie come from Steve Dent, based outside of London in Buckinghamshire. Mr. Dent is one of the main sources of horses, carriages, armor and stunt riders to the film and TV industry. Steve Dent’s carriage supervisor for the movie, Haydn Webb, gives an exclusive interview to Equine Info Exchange and one of our favorite authors, Patricia Saffran.

Did you know that Spanish horses are easy for the actors to ride because they learn their roles quickly? The Fresians add pure drama! Haydn gives an interesting account of matching the horse breeds with different actors to match their characters. English, Irish and Hungarian horses are used for the carriages. Read the full story here...
