Roy Rogers and Trigger - In many of Roy Rogers films and television episodes, he appeared with his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino Trigger, and his German Shepherd dog Bullet. His show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often Pat Brady, Andy Devine, or George "Gabby" Hayes. In his later years, Rogers lent his name to the Roy Rogers Restaurants franchised chain.
Roy Rogers mounted on Trigger Jr., using one of his famous plastic parade saddles. Trig Jr was a Tennessee Walking horse who had a nice repertoire of tricks, including dancing. He appeared in only a few movies (standing in for Trigger mostly), probably the best known is "Son of Paleface" with Bob Hope.
I don't know where this is, but seeing as the closest beach is seven hours away, it falls into the travel category. Sometime in my lifetime, I must ride a horse in the ocean. Preferably one that looks like that.
