This drawing illustrated "Breaking a Horse to Stand Fire" in Harper's Weekly, February 15, 1890. The author, "B.P." possibly Barnet Phillips, wrote, "Mr. Remington's various sketches bring into notice the breaking of horses for pistol practice . . . . The fifth sketch shows a horse used to the business, moving at a swinging stride. The cock of the horse's ears indicates that the animal knows that a pistol is to go off, and he steadies his nerves for the explosion."
