    I can recall scenes in which Jock, Bobby, Pam, Clayton, Ray, Donna and Jenna rode horses but did JR, Cliff, Lucy or Ellie ever ride a horse on the show? They probably did at some point but I can't remember them doing it.

    Yes. JR did in the final series. Bobby said,

    "Yes...that is your Uncle JR on a horse, this is the age of miracles".

    It was when the boys went out to sleep on the Range.

    Cliff maybe once??? Although could be imagining that. Miss Ellie in the Early Years.

    Oh, good question. I can certainly picture a young Lucy on a horse (maybe at the end of 'Triangle'?), but I don't think she rode again after the first couple of seasons. And in the dream season, we were certainly meant to think Miss Ellie had ridden out to Bobby's tree house and then his grave, but we never saw her on one.

    That's Lucy and the episode is Triangle from 78-79 season.

    Great! I can also see her in my mind's eye on a horse in a pink T-shirt looking surprised, maybe angry, at something in the distance. I thought it was might be when Gary first arrives at Southfork, but that's when she and Ray are in the barn.

    Oh, and she rode a horse in the snow in the mini-series to intercept and set fire to the letters about her bunking off of school.

    Lucy also rode a horse in a brief scene in the 1981-82 season. In that scene, she is riding with Donna, and Lucy is telling her about her marriage woes.

    Thank you, I thought it would be strange for Lucy never to get on a horse but it great having photographic evidence.

    I've not seen the final season in a very long time which is probably why I don't remember this. I usually stop watching after Pam drives her car into the tanker as that the was last good season.

    He's rather proud of himself, bobbing up and down on the poor horse :)

    Here in 1991 with James Beaumont and John Ross. I also think JR rode a horse on one of the first episodes in 1978.​

    Thank you.

    Right, I going to watch this episode soon although I'll fast forward any scene with Sheila Foley and Jory Taylor to save me from feeling sick.

    We saw JR on a horse once and never saw Ellie actually on one.

    Lucy not only could ride, she more than held her own rounding up strays with the men (including JR) during the Great Texas Windstorm of ‘78 in Winds of Vengeance!

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    I think Lucy did ride as well at the beginning of the 2nd or 3rd episode of the mini-series already. It's the one where she didn't want to go to school regulary and argued about that with Pam later. I'm not 100% sure but i guess this episode starts right off with her riding in the snow to fetch some letter from school from the outside postbox before anyone else finds it ... ?!

    Maybe Miss Bel Geddes didn't like horses very much or even was afraid of them and that's why we never saw Miss Ellie on one? Maybe @Barbara Fan might knows and could help out here?
