Horses in Heaven for Sam Shepard

Posted on 2 min read 163 views

The only video I could find of Sam Shepard with a horse is this scene from the movie “Ruffian,” portraying her maiden race, in which Shepard plays her trainer Frank Whiteley.

Thoughts of Sam Shepard may be more of theater, space exploration, and passionate family drama — less like a Norman Rockwell painting but more like Anakin Skywalker’s family.

But Shepard was a horseman, too. A former hot walker, rodeo rider, team roper, polo player, and breeder of race horses.
