The Hunting Horse in Art

"It was in the eighteenth century that the development of the speedy hounds bred by Hugo Meynell and the demand for crossing hedge, ditch, and fence at speed also produced the need for a much finer, faster, and more enduring mount. Fortunately, came the need, came the horse." from The Art of the Horse by John Fairly
