Jack Stoney seemed to be
the stunt double for Chubby Johnson in The Horse
Traders. Stoney really wasn't that great of a western
stuntman but his horse skills were better than Chubby
Johnson's. Watch about the middle of the episode when Stoney
(as Johnson) is on horseback going after the wagon and then
they do a close up of Johnson who says "I think he picked up
a rock on his hoof." But they never once showed Johnson
getting off the horse or on the horse. They probably dubbed
Johnson's voice on Stoney when he says "wait a minute".
I figured that was an
interesting tidbit because in the many western appearances I
have seen of Chubby Johnson I can't ever remember him
getting on a horse. Hank Patterson is the same way in that
some people look really western and rough but they can't
handle horse work. I may have seen Patterson on a horse
