Coloured etching. 220 x 200mm. 8¾ x 8". Pin holes in corners of margin.
A parson on a horse with one leg caught up in its surcingle (a strap around its body), on the road to York and Carlisle. George identifies him as either 'Rev. D. B. of Jesus College, Cambridge, who had dined too well at the Crown, Huntingdon, to discover the reason for his horse's hobbling pace . Perhaps Richard Beadon (1737-1824), Master of Jesus'. From Bunbury's 'An academy for grown horsemen, and annals of horsemanship'.
