Hidalgo - Shoddy Performance :)
At the end of the movie, Hopkins uses the money he won to save a band of mustangs from slaughter. The horses are released from their pens and begin to gallop off.
Back to Hopkins: he removes Hidalgo's saddle and bridle and releases him. Hidalgo walks off to join the band of mustangs and is soon galloping alongside them. Note how prettily the sunlight glints off the metal shoes on Hidalgo's hooves.
OOPS! Major no-no! Faux pas extraordinaire! Even horses put to pasture for a few weeks have their shoes removed to prevent any damage that can occur with a loose or missing shoe. I think the Hidalgo's horse wranglers fell asleep near the end of the movie. He should have been released unshod :)
Special Requirements:
Just watch the end of the movie

The hooves will grow out and the shoes will just fall off. True, it is probably considered good practice these days to take them off when turning horses out for an extended period, but I think it unlikely that anyone was concerned about it in those days.
