Happy 182nd birthday, Eadweard Muybridge! He proved: when horses are in a gallop, all four of the hooves don’t touch the ground (at one given point). Up until this was discovered, horses had been shown in paintings with their two front hooves touching the ground in a gallop. We owe him for motion & animation

lol i mentioned this in my English essay about photography yesterday

"You ask me what sport I do. I’ll say Equestrian. You tell me, it’s not a sport. You tell me, it’s easy. You tell me, it takes no skill. You tell me, we just sit there. You tell me, we aren’t athletes. You tell me, it’s just a silly hobby. But I ask you: have you ever trusted something so unpredictable who, with one misstep can kill us? Have you ever fallen from 10 feet up, going 35mph and brushed yourself off? Have you ever raced full speed towards a solid obstacle? Have you ever jumped something that’s taller than you? So before you underestimate us, think to yourself; do you understand the true bond required? Have you ever had a team mate, ten times your size? Ask yourself that, don’t judge us."
