Travel is about moments.
Big, small and everything in between. I’m Courtney Scott. Come on, Let’s Roam! In Disney’s much anticipated revival of the
Western classic, The Lone Ranger, horses play a central role in the story.
Months of preparation went into making these equestrian action sequences look this unbelievably
epic. I’m here at Rancho de Los Suenos outside of
Albuquerque, New Mexico, the very place where the actors and horses trained for Disney’s
new, The Lone Ranger. The ranch’s owner, Ann right hand man, Mario,
and these little guys were there to witness it all as the cast and stuntmen became one
with their horses. Practiced shooting, riding horses, all kinds
of stuff. They had a rig for teaching the horses to get
accustomed to having the cameras running alongside of them, so when you see those side shots
of the horses moving along. And they taught them how to do all their rearing.
And that was one of the most magnificent scenes where the sun is shining through and the horses
are rearing up, and that all happened right here in the right.
That all happened right here in the ring. Let’s see if I can ride like the stars.
If anyone can help me look like a pro, it’s Troy Rogers, professional horse trainer and
competitor. I saw so many incredible stallion scenes and
came here to do some for myself, and thought you could teach me.
Oh absolutely. We could sure show you a few. Odie, are you ready for that?
Let’s see what he can do! Okay Courtney, let’s go ahead and have you
start learning to turn that horse around a little bit.
Woah! That was awesome. Let’s have you learn how to stop and back
him up. Squeeze with both hands and your legs.
And we’re going back! Work your hands and squeeze with your legs.
Use your boots. He’s done this a few times, huh?
Just another day on the ranch. I’ll show you about what he’s able to do a
little higher level than what he was trained for.
He makes it look so easy! Hi-ho Silver!
Don’t miss Disney’s The Lone Ranger, in theatres July 3.
