Montie Montana 1910-1998 appeared in a number of John Wayne movies and made headlines in 1953 when he roped Pres Eisenhower as a gag during his inaugural parade.

Mr Montana was a fixture on the rodeo circuit in the USA and Canada and also appeared in more than 60 annual Tournament of Roses parades in Pasadena, California, waving to the crowd from a silver saddle.
