Unit 5 - Timeline - Eadweard Muybridge (1872)

The use of high speed photography was pioneered by Muybridge to prove that a galloping horse uses all four of it's hooves during running. In 1878, he took many stills of a horse by the name of Sallie Gardner as it gallops by. He successfully proved it to Leyland Stanford that a horse does bring all four of it's hooves on the ground while running.

:) He proved that the horse lifts all 4 hooves OFF the ground when running!
