Cowboys (originals) (Kirkland) F4211 [note taped to photo] Q. What sort of saddle horses did the old-time range cowboys ride? A. The photographer Kirkland of Cheyenne caught this excellent group of saddlehorses on the Roundup near Cheyenne. It depicts the general mustang stock the cowmen used in the 1880’s and 1890’s on the Wyoming range. Some of the stock had, by this time, been crossed with Morgan, American Bred Saddler and even Thoroughbred stock. Even traces of the Texas Steel Dust breeding remained in these fine saddle horses. –Denver Public Library Photo
