Ok now... I was reading all these posts to my husband. And, while he is cooking chicken wings in our new Air Fryer Oven...it has now turned into Trivial Pursuit! LOL

He told me Jimmie Stewart rode good in How The West Was Won and Liberty Valance. And then...he got going on ALL the Westerns that Henry Fonda was in and how good he rode. And then my husband got going way, way back to Errol Flynn in one of the best Robin Hood movies for a very long time...according to my hubby. And then, he also told me Rock Hudson rode really good in The Undefeated.

I couldn't believe how my hubby got involved in this post. He usually could care less what I post...even when it involves horses and care. LOL However, he even got into this one naming off actors and movies way, way back.

So.. This is/has been a very fun post; and even more so, at home. Thanks so much!!! Still sick, but having fun! LOL

I think Sam Elliott has a good seat & dont remember him jerking on the horse. He's in Shadow Riders & The Sacketts & some other westerns also.

Dude, we know who Sam is. ??

cloverleaf - 2019-01-03 1:07 PM I always felt sorry for that big, good-looking stocking-legged horse that John Wayne always rode. He was a little heavy-handed. Ben Johnson was a real cowboy before he went to Hollywood; he won the World in Team Roping in 1953. He won an Oscar for his role in Last Picture Show in 1972.

Ben was awesome on horse back in his younger days, he did some trick riding..

Glenn Ford was a good rider but had an unusual habit of lifting his arms waaaay up and out when he rode at a fast pace.  Jimmy Stewart, in almost all his westerns, rode the same horse named Pie.  An easy-going sorrel that Jimmy said knew exactly how to act and where to stand in front of the cameras.  This horse was getting pretty mossy-headed in later westerns but he stuck with him.
Let's not forget Roy Rogers and Trigger.  The King of the Cowboys rode pretty good too.

Jamie Foxx took up riding several years back when he was gifted a horse for his birthday. He used his new found skill to secure his role as the star of Jango Unchained. The horse he rides in the film is his personal mount.

William Shatner rides reining horses, I think he’s won some AQHA shows too. That’s kind of cool!

FLITASTIC - 2019-01-03 2:47 PM My dad is a stuntman in the movies. Pretty much exclusively westerns and Johnny Depp is horrible rider but thinks he is just awesome. Usually almost gets killed.
That is too funny! I think, he thinks, he is just great at everything!  

I just got a mental image of Johnny Depp trying to ride while in his Captain Jack Sparrow persona....drunk....acting drunk....whatever.

I think I'm overly tired and I need to go to bed.

Quick Google search and yeah, he's broke! Wine isnt the only problem here but evidently he likes to buy it and drink it all up. Ha.

scwebster - 2019-01-03 7:11 AM Matt Damon sat one well in All the Pretty Horses. As does Lucas Black. He was in another horse movie, "Flash" when he was younger that required him to ride as well.

Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips and most all of the cast of Young Guns did well.

I saw that for Yellowstone, the actors had to go to Cowboy Boot Camp where they rode horses for days among other things to improve their skills for the show.

Viggo Mortensen is another good one.



ETA: At one time Kiefer took a break from acting and moved to a ranch. He team roped competitively during this time.


 

Matt Damon's brother is a barrel racer in the northwest.

I completely forgot about Casey's Shadow! It has been so long since I've seen it.  I don't remember the riding, but it was such a great movie back then.

Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, and Tom Selleck always look good in the saddle, and you rarely see their horse's heads in the air. I was always impressed with Candice Bergen's riding in Bite the Bullet, too. I don't know if she had any prior riding experience but she looked very comfortable in the saddle. Gene Hackman, too.

A lot of the traditional western stars were good riders, but heavy handed. Styles were different then, though. Even the reining horses of those days often had their noses in the air while stopping.

My cousin doubled for Kevin Costner for many years; Kevin actually rides a lot, but I can always tell the difference in their riding, lol. Woody Harrelson's riding looked rough in The Cowboy Way, but was much better in The Hi-Lo Country. My dad doubled for Billy Crudup in that one.

I get the feeling some of the roughness with their horses heads, especially in the older westerns, was to purposely upset their horse and stir them up for show.  I loved Audie Murphy and he always rode good horses but he was a little guilty of that.  Burt Lancaster was just the opposite.  He liked to keep them quiet.
