    @Grisostomo06 I second that! watching this scene many years ago made me want to become a rodeo rider, sad to say it never came to be…but the stunt riders of this era were amazing.

    The stunt riding is amazing. I think one of the reasons there are so few westerns made anymore is that you can’t find actors and stunt men who can ride anything like the actors you see in this scene. Connors was great in this movie. It’s his best role by far.
