Antique print. Don Balthazar, 'Infante of Spain' after the painting by Velasquez... shown as a pupil of La Haute Ecole, the "high school"  of equestrian instruction, denoting that the riding school strove to develop a horse's natural talents, its mental and physical abilities, and to establish discipline and understanding in relationships and interaction with a horse.

Original colour-printed lithograph by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, for Samuel Sidney’s The Book of the Horse printed by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co of London, Paris and New York circa 1874.

At the end of the 19th century, the quality of chromolithographic illustrations was exceptional. The lithographs for Cassells Book of the Horse are some of the finest horse illustrations ever.
