SAD­DLE HORSE

EQUUS - - Insights Conformati­on -

Ed­ward Low­ell An­der­son was a lawyer who had served as a Union of­fi­cer dur­ing the Civil War. He ran a horse­man­ship school in Ohio, mod­eled on the prin­ci­ples of Fran­cois Baucher, which ad­vo­cated hu­mane and sys­tem­atic train­ing. His 1881 book, The Sad­dle Horse: A Com­plete Guide for Rid­ing and Train­ing, was one of the first to make use of pho­tog­ra­phy to teach rid­ing. We do not have the name of the Mor­gan stal­lion he rides in this im­age. Note the docked tail, usu­ally an in­di­ca­tion that the an­i­mal had pre­vi­ously been bro­ken to har­ness.
