Western Movie Horses

The actual old-time cowhands considered horses tools of the trade and thus rode what their employers supplied them. However, the western movie heroes often did have favorite horses that they rode in film after film. Below are the celluloid westerners with their favorite mounts. (Click on for larger photos.)
