    Default Actress on horseback

    Who are the most elegant or adventurous (or else) equestriennes you've seen on-screen?

    Susan Hayward is so elegant, even more so when riding side-saddle.

    Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967). Liz with riding crop had its moments.

    Not a bad movie, didn't get a lot of attention, but I thought actually one of Brando's better performances.

    I have never ridden horseback (sat on a few, but at never more than a slow walk with someone on the ground holding the reins), but often wondered how anyone could ride sidesaddle. How do they keep their balance, especially at a gallop?

    A big disappointment, and I have no more to say on the subject.

    I'm 2 for 3. Ridden three times, and bucked off twice.

    I just re-watched "The Professionals" the other night. So, when I saw this thread, the beautiful Claudia Cardinale immediately came to mind.

    My favorite line from the movie, as closely as I can remember: "The Revolution, she is like a great love affair. In the beginning, she is a goddess, a great holy cause. But every holy cause has a terrible enemy; time. We see her as she is. The Revolution was not a goddess. She always was a *****, never pure, never saintly, never perfect. We run away and find another lover, another purpose, another cause; quick, sordid affairs, lust without love, passion, but no compassion. Without a cause, we are nothing. We stay because we believe, we believe because we are disillusioned, we come back because we are lost, we are nothing. We die because we need her."

    Quite an observation from a Mexican revolutionary, as written by a Hollywood screenwriter. But I was just a kid at the movies, then .
