HN’s Horses in Horror-­o-­thon! Day 3

While you won’t find today’s movie in the horror section at your local video store, the Nazgul riders of “Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring” still classify as hella creepy.


I remember the first time I saw a Nazgul rider… the year was 2002 and I was watching the movie alone in my uncomfortable, unnaturally cold, college dorm room. It freaked me out. That bloody messed up hoof freaked. me. out.


I mean, honestly, that is not good hoof care. Considering the miles they put in, the Nazgul should really invest in a better farrier.

The Nazgul riders continue to haunt and horrify throughout the film. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite moments.

Bonus: Arwen’s horse is ah­-mazing! Oh just let me do a Working Equitation course amongst this copse of trees while we’re running for our lives.

And so you don’t have Nazgul filled nightmares, here’s a behind the scenes outtake.


…definitely less scary with coordinating umbrellas.

Go Riding!
