the horse who starred in
San Bernardino is in the state of California, United States of America
Story from "Running Free " OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL GENERIC HORSE ASSOCIATION Fall-Winter 1996
Even though all the HorseAid horses are special in their
own way, we got two really interesting geldings into our program this past
year. One is a "star" of sorts, a horse that all of you
have probably seen at the movies or on TV, and in complete contrast the
other is an absolute unknown ? he didn't even have a name, let alone an
identity, before becoming a HorseAid horse. You will probably recognize
Sam as the sheriff's
horse in the 1974 Mel Brooks classic comedy, "Blazing Saddles."
The flashy Palomino has been seen by movie fans all over the world, and
he will forever be immortalized on film. Though old and toothless now,
Sam is still chipper and loving. Donated by
his owner of eight years after the man suffered a stroke, Sam
had lost weight and was basically being neglected at his boarding
stable. The San Bernardino Humane Society got involved, but thankfully
Sam's owner was able to give the Palomino
to HorseAid, who will care for him and give him the attention he requires
for the rest of his life.

The movie Blazing Saddles was partly filmed at Vasquez rocks located North of Santa Clarita, Newhall, Saugus, Canyon Country in the state of California.
