Tom Mix purchased his famous horse, Tony, for $600. The two first appeared in the 1917 film THE HEART OF TEXAS RYAN. Tom Mix did all his own tricks and he and Tony, aka "The Wonder Horse," made 181 movies together.
Taken in 1941, this photo is of Cowgirl Hall of Fame Honoree, Lucyle Richards, as she rides underneath the belly of her horse, Chief Geronimo in Houston, Texas. As if the trick wasn't impressive enough, Richards also trained this wild horse herself.
