Hammer explained, “I did a lot of cycling before we did the movie to get my legs into shape for the horses and to kind of get my ass into shape for it. Nothing is more uncomfortable than a bike seat. I would think the saddle would be a step up! I cheated. I put a little like, gel layer on my bike. You could ride forever, man! I put in like 50 miles, it’s great.”
He added, “I can actually wrap my legs like, all the way around the horse and just hook my feet underneath, so I don’t even need a saddle. It’s great, saves them a bunch of money on production budget. No, I have a few horses that I work with, a of couple steeds, I mean a couple like, impressive horses where I’m like, ‘Whoa, that is a big horse!’”
