Soft, thin black lines depict a stallion in profile facing right, with his head turning toward the viewer and his ears up. The horse has a light colored saddle and bridle which contrast with his dark coat. His main appears to be braided and his tail cropped at about half length. The reins can be seen attached at its bit, and loosely looped through the bridle and attached to the saddle’s girth on the opposite side of the horse. Quickly sketched lines indicate his shadow and imply a background.
