Note:

This postcard is very similar to the postcard titled “Jumping Contest”; accession number WH-PC-180-017. Both postcard images were most likely created on the same day. The horsemanship contests not only served to stimulate good will competitiveness among the different military units but the contests also prepared the men and animals to be “field ready”.
