The rider of this horse is about to lose his seat and hit the dust. For a few Light Horsemen who had been issued a particularly strong willed mount, the scene shown in this painting was a regular daily occurrence. When first mounted for the day- or night ride, some horses insisted on bucking their rider off – just to show him who was the real boss in this particular partnership of man and horse. They would then settle down to the task at hand and be completely amiable and compliant.

Such a horse was Blue: “Every morning, for the remainder of the war, the same scene was enacted – when Bob mounted ‘Blue’ as he had named the horse, he was promptly thrown. The second time the horse walked away. It was as if ‘Blue’ was simply letting the rider know just who was boss. Some mornings, when Bob was feeling better than others he would stay on a little longer – but Blue would not let up until he had tossed him off” It was one of the little diversions of the war the Troop looked forward to every morning.” LIGHT HORSE, Lawrence McRae, 1986, p55
