Stunt Horses

Trivia Quiz In 1940 a great travesty occurred that pushed animal welfare in movies to the forefront. A movie called "Jesse James" resulted in the deaths of eight horses. It was not the first time that horses died in the making of films, but it was the first time that something was done to change it. From 1940 until 1966 horses and all stunt animals received the protection of the government. Then from 1966 until 1980 those protections were lifted. This was once again a bad time for animals in film.

The Charge of the Light Brigade( 1926) is one of the most bloody movies in terms of animal deaths. It would have been expensive to train a large number of falling horses, so they used dirt covered pits, Running W's, and trip wires to get the desired result. The deaths of trick and stunt horses is usually a direct result of foregoing proper training and planning. The golden years when the greatest stunt horses existed and performed without injury are proof that horses can be trained to fall, to rear, to fight, to jump into water and off of cliffs. Several trainers even were able to train their horses to handle being "lit" on fire, jump through fire, jump through glass and do all sorts of amazing stunts. The greatest horses received Craven Awards or Patsy awards. These horses were trained in a humane manner and were very well cared for. This quiz will honor the well-trained horses as well as ask questions about the methods or the movies that resulted in the death of stunt horses. This quiz also includes questions about the horses that played important movie roles and their trainers. I have used the IMDB as well as several websites such as I have also used my own memory which is rather scary.

I hope that if you can not enjoy the quiz at the very least learn something.
