I read the name but am not familiar with that stuff.
What I DID notice was that in this film, Gandoff
(stunt double?) rode him bareback (except when he tore
out of the stables...saddle was hidden) and had a
white rope abound his neck.  I don't know if the rope
was supposed to blend in so we thought Gandoff had
NOTHING on the horse or not.

The "rope" around his neck is called a "tack rein" for those of you unfamiliar. There is a group of kids here in the Boise area called the Ehcapa Riders that perform in a group using tack reins and riding bareback. They even jump, it's most impressive. I'd like to know more about riding with a tack rein, but my I'm afraid all my trusty Morgan mare would do is eat without something on her head:)
