In 1891 there were three times as many people working in horse drawn transport than there were working on the railways, so horses would have been a considerable presence in Victorian London. Few could afford to ride for pleasure, especially as appropriate clothing was very expensive however, many kept horses to pull their carriages. Horse auctions like the one featured on this leaflet would have been the most popular way of purchasing horses.
