You need two things to make a Western: cowboys and horses. Every good hero deserves a majestic ride. 

During the golden era of the TV Western, in the late-'50s and 1960s, the horses were often as famous as the humans. They had their own toys and trading cards, too. They also had some wonderful names.

We're going to show you 10 classic horse "characters" from memorable Western series. See if you can lasso the correct show. Giddy-up and good luck!
