Title

The parade of veteran war-horses at Olympia in the International horse show of 1934

Subject

Horses who served in the First World War

Description

Photographs of 24 horses, with captions and descriptive text, across two pages. A number of the anecdotes about the horses indicate a very strong bond between the rider and the steed.
Note that horse no. 7 is called 'Nigger', doubtless because of a black coat (though we cannot be certain due to the limitations of black-and white photography). This may present an opportunity to discuss changing norms in relation to socially acceptable naming, in the context of animals.
