POTD: Using a Horse as a Shooting Rest

    I ran across this photo some time ago in a book, the title of which I cannot recall. The caption notes that the image is of a cavalry trooper armed with a Martini-Henry, taken in 1895, using his horse as a shooting rest. What’s remarkable to me is that the horse is so calm and so willing to lie on the ground and allow his rider to fire off of him. Truly, a well-trained horse!
