The Colonel is the main antagonist in Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

Appearance & Personality

The Colonel is a powerful soldier with a tall slender body and a powerful attitude.

He tried to tame the west and its animals. He was defeated at the canyon. Spirit tried to get his soldiers off the horses and wasn't seen much.

A coincidence with him and Spirit can be made.

Although he doesn't seem to be all bad, he does have a sense of respect when Spirit jumped over the canyon for freedom and decides to let him escape. Possibly showing respect for horses to have a strong courage and determination.


After Spirit is captured by the United States Army, he meets The Colonel. The Colonel has his men attempt to tame Spirit, but the horse manages to outsmart the other riders. Spirit is then ordered to be tied to a post for three days without food or water. The army captures a Lakota Native American named Little Creek and Colonel gives Little Creek the same punishment as Spirit. The next morning, The Colonel attempts to ride Spirit and to Spirit's dismay, he cannot buck The Colonel off of him.

Some time after Little Creek and Spirit break free of the ranch, The Colonel and his army attack the Indian camp. The Colonel points his gun at Rain and shoots her, causing her to fall into a river. Spirit kicks The Colonel off of his horse and runs off to save Rain.

When Spirit destroys the locomotive, The Colonel and a couple of wranglers follow him and Little Creek. After Spirit jumps over the canyon for freedom, an army man raises his gun towards Spirit. However, The Colonel stops the man from shooting Spirit and gives the horse and respectful nod. Spirit nods back and The Colonel parts away from him.
