Mezzotint. Platemark: 150 x 110mm (6 x 4¼"). Very large margins.
A lady, in profile to the right, is firing a gun which she supports on the neck of a pony which is quietly grazing. She wears a feathered hat, a coat of masculine cut over a narrow skirt, with high-heeled shoes. A powder-horn is slung across her shoulder. A man dressed crouches down behind her to the right. A second lady stands behind him putting a ramrod down the barrel of her gun. Trees and water can be seen in the background.
