Horse is a 1965 underground film directed by Andy Warhol, written by Ronald Tavel, and starring Edie Sedgwick, Gregory Battcock, Tosh Carillo, Ondine, Norman Glick, Daniel Cassidy Jr., and Larry Latrae (Latreille). Warhol himself makes a cameo appearance in the film.[1][2]

A photo from Horse published in Parker Tyler's book Underground Film (Grove Press, 1969; reprint DaCapo Press, 1995) shows all the male performers dressed only in jockstraps.


The main event is a strip poker game in which an outlaw, his sheriff captor, and a pal join in. The game ends with the outlaw (Tosh Carrillo) getting beaten up by the others for cheating. At one point, one of the men sits on the real horse (a stallion) hired for the day by Warhol.
