A U.S. For­est Ranger in Mon­tana, 1910. This horse is a Cayuse show­ing mostly Span­ish in­flu­ence. The bit is a dou­ble-ring snaf­fle, and the sad­dle has min­i­mum skirts and fend­ers to make it lighter. The sad­dle pad is thick and stuffed or lined with wool. Note de­spite the steep ter­rain there is nei­ther crup­per nor breast­plate, but there are two func­tional mo­hair cinches.

Moun­tain man, trap­per and jour­nal­ist An­drew Gar­cia in Mon­tana, 1872. The hand­some and friendly horse is a Cayuse show­ing Mor­gan and Cana­dian in­flu­ence.
