Muybridge’s Horse in Motion
After the beginning of the gallop, there are counts when the horse is in the air, her legs withdrawn, a diamond shape.
This is called suspension.
Her name is Sallie Gardner.
She’s by Vandal, out of Charlotte Thompson, Kentucky bred, of Irish pedigree, a Birdcatcher
Now she belongs to the patron, gold rush tycoon Leland Stanford, who wants to see her in slow motion, to prove a point.
