The artist writes, “For years I have been fascinated by the old time horseback buffalo hunts and have painted several versions of that theme. The fast action, flying dirt and the look of determination in the eyes of both hunter and prey makes for a superb drama. This form of hunting was also extremely dangerous and huntsmen and their horses were specially trained for the event. One of the dangers in chasing down large buffalo was that they had the ability to make a sudden spin move by turning on their front legs 180 degrees and in a moment be head first into the side of the horse. In an instant the tables were turned in favor of the pursued and not the pursuer.”
