In Pursuit of Honor

In Pursuit of Honor is a 1995 American made-for-cable Western film directed by Ken Olin.

Don Johnson stars as a member of a United States Cavalry detachment refusing to slaughter its horses after being ordered to do so by General Douglas MacArthur.

The movie follows the plight of the officers as they attempt to save the animals that the Army no longer needs as it modernizes toward a mechanized military.

The movie claims to be based on a true story but without firm evidence to support the claim.
