Who would you guys say is the best horserider in this film.......or in FFOD?

The most obvious choice would be Mr. Eastwood, simply cos you see a lot of him on horseback, but then again, Gian Maria Volonte seems like he`s pretty god as well.

i say Lee Van Cleef since he could make a little cut on your neck with a bullet while riding a horse.

I'd say Clint Eastwood, but it appears that they're all good riders.

Yeah the pre robbery scene where he is riding with all the music in the background is amazing. But then Gian Maria didn`t look too bad either, its just that I guess that Sergio Leone didn`t show much of Indio riding, with the focus being mainly on Eastwood.

By this point Eastwood would have had seven years experience riding on the tv series Rawhide, so odds are he is probably the best rider.

Mortimer was standing on his own two feet when he did that.

I think there were some very good riders in the movie but just from watching the gang ride away from the bank after casing it, I would say the hunchback looked to be a very skilled rider and maybe even the best !

an experienced rider dosn't necessarily make a good rider.  Not that i'm suggesting Clint Eastwood isn't...just...!

There's lots of things that make a good rider - maybe some of the most important are; consideration for the horse; soft hands; no thumping in the saddle and no booting ribs with spurs!  The two that seem to be most at one with horses are Lee Van Cleef and Terrence Hill - they always have an automatic and considerate pat for the horse when they mount or dismount.

sometimes you see some who appear good riders and then later you're praying that it was just a director not understanding horses.  I used to belong to a Dark Ages re-enactment group and we all pulled our punches (the physical ones anyway!) - maybe a really cute rider could look as if he's jarring the horse in the mouth of kicking hard with his spurs but this would be much, much harder than it looks.  Getting a horse to fall on it's left shoulder would be childs play - well almost!

I'll have to have another look at some of the films again....

Yeah, it was Clint Eastwood who was riding away when Lee Van Cleef did (still, equally impressive.  Go Mortimer!)

Let us know. :)



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
