    The first illustration shows a portly gentleman, Mr Briggs, and other figures standing before a young horse in a stable. The caption explains that Briggs, 'having become an adept in the art of horse-taming, operates upon a colt he has bred himself, and which has never been broken,—'. The sentence continues 'With complete success' under the second illustration, which shows Mr Briggs standing proudly on the colt which now lies on the stable floor.
