The name of Sonny Steele's horse in the film is "Rising Star". The star steed was played by a five year old bay thoroughbred called "Let's Merge" after a six month equine talent scout. Robert Redford
bought the horse after production was complete and owned him for 18 years before the horse passed away. See more
