Random Vintage Video: ‘The Petrol Horse’ (1920)

It even runs out on first attempt, just like a real horse probably would!

Reader Lynn sent us a link to this video, assuming it was something we HN weirdos would appreciate. (And we do — thank you, Lynn!)

I really have no context for it other than that it’s from the moving picture archive collection British Pathé, which uploaded 85,000 historic newsreels to YouTube in an effort to make them more accessible to viewers earlier this year. They have all kinds of cool vintage racing and horse show footage — have a look on their YouTube channel here.

Go Riding.
