A Rodeo of Horse Art

Bestjonbon has put together 230 pictures of the horse in art--from medieval to Impressionist to Amercian Western.  The show is set to the music of Aaron Copeland's Rodeo.  Watching this review really highlights the important role that the horse has played in transportation, war, exploration, sports--andhow it just brings joy to the lives of horse owners.  I had to watch this multiple times.

The very first picture in the video is of a medieval ambler, a type of gaited horse like the Icelandic.  How many other gaited horses can you find in the video?
