Throughout the years, we have all seen the great horses of Hollywood. Growing up watching the noble steeds of cowboy heroes, etched into our brains the idea of an iconic wonder horse like Roy Roger’s Trigger, The Lone Rangers Hi-Ho Silver, or John Wayne’s beloved Duke! In order to thrive on set, these horses truly had to be just as amazing in real life as they were on the big screens. They carried iconic western stars on cattle drives, cutting cows from the herd for branding, chasing bad guys through mountain passes and across barren plains, or simply to town for supplies. Even a movie and TV cowboy could not survive without a good, broke horse. In fact, actors and stunt riders’ lives depend on their horses being reliable, even tempered, and highly-trained. These Hollywood Hoofbeats are made timeless by their unwavering dedication, and recognizable presence on and off screen.

Featured in Yellowstone, Sully was ridden by recognizable characters like Cole Hauser’s legendary Rip, and even Josh Lucas as Young John Dutton in a various flashbacks in Season 5.
