Fact of the day
Born rider Renoir
With the beginning of the Franco-Prussian War, Renoir, who had never ridden a horse before, was sent to serve in cavalry regiment ... to tame horses. When the young artist came to the captain and told him about his profession, the man made a joke: "At least they didn’t send you into artillery!"
But it turned out that Renoir had the natural abilities of a rider. He learned to handle horses in a couple of months and got the most capricious and stubborn animals for taming. During his service, the artist had only one horse, with which he couldn't cope. "The recalcitrant found a way to get rid of me: the horse leaned against the wall of the arena with all its weight, trying to crush my leg. I tried the whip, tenderness and sugar – nothing helped," Renoir later said.
