Do you know the date of this photograph or the location? It looks vintage WWI. Very cool!
It was taken at Camp Cody, N.M. sometime during WW1…
Would Love to buy a printer of this picture.. Any ideas??
The photograph is part of the Library of Congress Collection. You can download it from here: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2018646141/. The image there isn’t huge, but it has a good amount of detail.
All I want is to have a print of this BEAUTIFUL PICTURE.., I rode Hunter and Jumpers when Younger and I Love my HORSES!! Any chance of purchasing one?? Sincerely, Carol Spratt

If you download the photo from the website, you can have your own print made.

Thank you for the details!
The Keokuk County Historical Society in Sigourney, Iowa, has one of these pictures in our museum. Lee Hollingsworth of Ollie, Iowa, was in the picture. He entered service on Sept. 21, 1917, and reported to Camp Dodge, Iowa. We also know that he was sationed at Camp Cody. Thus, the date would need to be late 1917 or there-after. We have no other information but were glad to see it on the web-site. June Rice
Thanks! I love it when readers can chime in and help give context to the photos.
Want to buy the print of this picture, please!!
So how do I go about buying a Print of these HEROS!!?!?
I wish I knew. I’ll see if I can find out if it was ever made into a print.
I would like to use this photo on the cover of an equestrian magazine to commemorate the ANZAC contribution/the horses. Who do i talk to about this ?
The best information that I can find on the photo is this. Since the image was taken before 1923, it is in the public domain so it should be possible for you to use it along with credit to the photographer.
Calvary Unit in Camp Cody, NM posed to represent the head of the saddle horse of commander Frank G. Brewer. It was a tribute to horses, donkeys and mules that died during the war.
In the caption at the bottom it reads
“650 Officers and Enlisted Men of Auxiliary Remount Depot , Camp 326, Camp Cody , NM
Symbol of Head Pose of “The Devil,” Saddle Horse Ridden By Maj. Frank G. Brewer, Remount Commander”
Research dates the photo to around 1917.
