English: The Horse in Motion by Eadweard Muybridge. Noted photographer, Eadweard Muybridge was hired, in 1872, by Leland Stanford a railroad baron and future university founder, to find out if there was moment mid-stride where horses had all hooves off the ground.[1] It took several years but Muybridge delivered having captured a horse, named "Sallie Gardner," owned by Stanford; running at a 1:40 gait over the Palo Alto track, on 19th June 1878.[1] Muybridge used a dozen cameras all triggered one after another with a set of strings.

Français : Le cheval en mouvement par Eadweard Muybridge. Muybridge est engagé en 1872 en sa qualité de photographe par Leland Stanford, à la tête d’un empire ferroviaire (et futur fondateur d’université), pour déterminer si, lors de sa course, un cheval décolle tous ses sabots simultanément du sol[1]. Après plusieurs années, Muybridge parvient à photographier les différentes phases du mouvement d’un cheval, Sallie Gardner, propriété de Stanford, le 19 juin 1978 sur une piste à Palo Alto. Pour cela, il utilise une douzaine d’appareils photographiques, déclenchés l’un après l’autre par un jeu de ficelles[1].
