    John­son was born in Foraker, Ok­la­homa, on the Osage In­dian Reser­va­tion, of Irish and Chero­kee an­ces­try, the son of Ollie Susan John­son (née Work­mon; 1899-2000) and Ben John­son, Sr. (1896-1952). His fa­ther was a rancher and rodeo cham­pion in Osage County. John­son was drawn to the rodeos and horse breed­ing of his early years. In 1953, he took a break from well-paid film work to com­pete in the Pro­fes­sional Rodeo Cow­boys As­so­ci­a­tion (PRCA) be­com­ing Team Rop­ing World Cham­pion, al­though he only broke even fi­nan­cially that year. John­son was in­ducted into the Pro­Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1973. Ac­cord­ing to his Pro­Rodeo Hall of Fame entry, he said, "I’ve won a rodeo world cham­pi­onship, and I’m prouder of that than any­thing else I’ve ever done.” In 2003, he was in­ducted into the Texas Trail of Fame.John­son's mother Ollie died a few years after her son, on Oc­to­ber 16, 2000, aged 101. John­son's 1941 mar­riage to Carol Elaine Jones lasted until her death...

    John­son's film ca­reer began with the Howard Hughes film, The Out­law. Be­fore film­ing began, Hughes bought some horses at the Ok­la­homa ranch that John­son's fa­ther man­aged, and hired John­son to get the horses to north­ern Ari­zona (for The Outlaw's lo­ca­tion shoot­ing), and then to take them on to Hollywood.[citation needed] John­son liked to say later that he got to Hol­ly­wood in a car­load of horses. With his ex­pe­ri­ence wran­gling for Hughes dur­ing The Outlaw's lo­ca­tion shoot­ing, once in Hol­ly­wood, he did stunt work for the 1939 movie The Fight­ing Gringo, and through­out the 1940s, he found work wran­gling horses and doing stunt work in­volv­ing horses.[citation needed] His work as a stunt­man caught the eye of di­rec­tor John Ford. Ford hired John­son for stunt work in the 1948 film Fort Apache, and as the rid­ing dou­ble for Henry Fonda. Dur­ing shoot­ing, the horses pulling a wagon with three men in it stam­peded. John­son, who "hap­pened to be set­tin' on a...

    John­son con­tin­ued to work al­most steadily until his death from a heart at­tack at the age of 77.On April 8, 1996, the vet­eran actor col­lapsed while vis­it­ing his 96-year-old mother Ollie at Leisure World in Mesa, Ari­zona, the sub­ur­ban Phoenix re­tire­ment com­mu­nity where they both lived. John­son's body was later trans­ported from Ari­zona to Pawhuska, Ok­la­homa, for bur­ial at the Pawhuska City Cemetery. For his con­tri­bu­tion to the mo­tion pic­ture in­dus­try, John­son has a star on the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame at 7083 Hol­ly­wood Boule­vard. In 1982, he was in­ducted into the West­ern Per­form­ers Hall of Fame at the Na­tional Cow­boy & West­ern Her­itage Mu­seum in Ok­la­homa City. In 1996, Tom Thur­man made a doc­u­men­tary film about John­son's life, ti­tled Ben John­son: Third Cow­boy on the Right, writ­ten by Thur­man and Tom Marksbury.
