Caption: Horse and rider. High-speed photographic sequence of a rider on a cantering horse (Equus caballus). This sequence, by the British-American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), was published in Animal Locomotion (1887). The action runs from left to right starting at the top left. Muybridge pioneered the use of high-speed photography and employed novel techniques to study animal and human locomotion. He began his work on high-speed photography when he was commissioned to discover whether galloping horses have all of their feet off the ground at certain times. He proved that they did (as shown at upper right).
