This reminds me of the fabulous master work by Igaz Duvivier, titled "MOOR BAITING".. c 1780......as exercised by the Spanish Riding School....(no photo of painting found-will have to do a quick sketch from my book)...:-)
I knew there had to be a reason why the SRS is still going strong-and why our military still trains with HORSES..
Somali terrorists train using B. Hussein Obama (MOOR Baiting?)as target practice....
I read the article last week- there were no photos of terrorists on horse-back!
Thank you - Jim Hoft- Gateway Pundit for this:

BTW--my comment on his site:
Our guys had better be training to ride bare-back too-or the terrorist will be a big problem!
If you can ride bare-back and still do battle-you are an EXCELLENT horseman!
