Orlando Bloom went from a non-rider to looking pretty darn good on a horse in Lord of the Rings and Kingdom of Heaven.  He rode well bareback and that's always a good sign.

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.

Probably a lot of truth to that. Makes things seem more urgent and dramatic. Like all those random horse noises they always add in, lol.

Yes, loved Ben Johnson but in his younger days in the old John Wayners he rode like a wild Indian.  Dead stop to dead run to grinding halt all in 5 seconds. I'm sure the audience loved it but he was sure tough on his horses.
