Riding Horses into a saloon is one of the most repeated stories in the West. There are two
reasons, I think, for this; That the image of the Westerner doing it is just too good to
pass up, and that MANY times it really was done. I have personally seen it done as late as
1970. The consternation this causes is way too delicious for some to resist.Don't
allow anyone to tell you it didn't happen, it just may not of happened in Lewisburg.
It seems more likely to me that it may of occured on the Missouri side of Lineville.
That's where a man went to raise hell back in the day.
