"A design in six compartments arranged as in British Museum Satires No. 11811. 'The Race Horse': a jockey stands at the animal's head, his saddle on the ground beside him. 'The War Horse': a hussar, sword in hand, rides a rearing horse over the prostrate body of an officer. A battle is indicated in the background. 'The Shooting Poney': a stout man fires from the back of a sturdy cob, the reins lying on its neck; two dogs run forward. 'The Hunter': a huntsman leaps a rustic fence, waving his cap; he is close behind the hounds. 'The Gig Horse': a tall sturdy animal stands in the shafts of a light two-wheeled gig, on high springs. The driver stands at his head with a dog. 'The Draught Horse': a sturdy animal draws a two-wheeled cart heaped with sacks; a carter runs beside, leading the horse."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
