In 1890, a down-and-out cowboy and his horse travel to Arabia to compete in a deadly cross desert horse race.
Screenwriter John Fusco got the idea for the film when doing research for Thunderheart (1992). He was told stories about Hidalgo by an elderly chief, while living on the Pine Ridge reservation.
Frank T. Hopkins:
C'mon little brother. Checkout time. Yeah.
During the course of the movie, the pattern on the right side of Hidalgo's neck changes. At his shoulder, throughout the movie, the pattern changes to having chestnut spots and then having a solid white splotch on his shoulder.
