Widely considered one of Hollywood’s best horsewomen, May Boss rode the rodeo circuit before getting her start in show business in the heyday of Hollywood Westerns.

“She trick rode in rodeos, and in those days they were making a lot of Westerns, so it was an easy transition for her,” said her son, stuntman Clay Boss.

Her first movie stunt was in 1952 on The Story Of Will Rogers, and many Westerns followed including Nevada Smith, The Hallelujah Trail, John Ford’s How The West Was Won and doubling for Hayworth in They Came to Cordura. She died at age 90.
