World Leaders on Horseback~ Happy Presidents Day to My US readers!

Excellent article about world leaders of the past and their steeds.

The Flying Shetlands

George Washington, The First President

Since here in the US it is Presidents Day weekend, I thought that I would feature a few of our presidents on horseback as well as other world leaders riding horses as well. I took extra time to try and find all of the artists names, but unfortunately was not able to. If anyone  knows of any of the artists names or another leaders in paintings/sculpture, please contact me.  Thanks!

Here is a very interesting site that has a lot of info on the horses of the White House: http://www.whitehousehistory.org/presentations/white-house-horses/index.html
