Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Struggles With Horse Riding

Johnny Depp is struggling to master horseriding on the set of his latest film.

The 49-year-old actor - who recently split from the mother of his two children Vanessa Paradis - is currently shooting 'The Lone Ranger' but insiders say he has not yet got to grips with his animal co-star.

One said: ''It has become a problem for Johnny. He wants to do all his own stunts, but he's been falling off his horse so often that producers worry he's going to do permanently damage his tailbone.''

Johnny - who plays Tonto in the upcoming blockbuster - is refusing to use a stuntman and is also growing increasingly frustrated as co-star Armie Hammer is a natural at horseriding.

The source added to National Enquirer magazine: ''He sees Armie doing everything so easily, and that's got him even more frustrated.''

Johnny recently revealed the make-up and appearance for Tonto was based on a painting by artist Kirby Sattler.

He said: ''I'd actually seen a painting by an artist named Kirby Sattler, and looked at the face of this warrior and thought, That's it... The stripes down the face and across the eyes... it seemed to me like you could almost see the separate sections of the individual, if you know what I mean.''

I've owned horses and even though I was a moderate rider, I would not be able to do stunts while at a dead run etc. Why pick Johnny to death and make a big deal of it? He's to be commended for wanting to do his own stunts. Maybe he needs a calmer horse. Horses def. have their own personalities and some will throw you off and some are more patient. They all are very large unpredictable, dangerous animals. Go Johnny.
