Johnny Mack Brown was a good athlete and a good horseman.  Among the cinema cowboys, he was one of the better riders ... and among the best of the "screen brawlers".

Above and below images - Brown atop his palomino hoss during his cowboy series at Universal.  As best I can determine, the hoss' original name was 'Reno', but was changed to 'Rebel' when he was at Monogram.  The reason for the name change --- his female co-star in several films was Reno Blair (Reno Browne).
