In 1878, via stop motion photography using what was for that time a highly technical and innovative arrangement of cameras,  Eadweard Muybridge definitively solved an ongoing debate as to whether or not a horse at a gallop ever had all four feet off the ground at the same time. They of course do, but up until that time artists had always painted running horses with at least one foot on the ground at all times. No such subtly of technique is needed to establish the same finding for bucking broncos, as this shot from the ranch rodeo at the Gallatin County fair easily shows. Let’er buck!
