Judge Callison: Mr. Whitfield, do you own a horse?
Joe Whittfield: Yes. Yes, sir.
Judge Callison: Well, son, I suggest while the bees are in the butter you get on your horse and ride. Ride and don't look back.
Judge Callison: Now! Ride hard, boy. Ride hard.


Question: In the scene where they cross the bridge with the train, and Allison French is being held by those two guys with a rope around her neck, so that if they would shoot the guys, the horse would run off and break her neck, suffocate her or whatever... They were with 4 against 2, so why didn't one of 'em just shoot that horse?

Chosen answer: There's no explanation. It could be that no one thought of this. Also, even if they shot the horse, the girl could still be injured or killed. If the horse was only wounded, it could have bolted, reared up, or fallen and then rolled on top of the girl. There's many different scenarios that could have played out.
