Legend has it that this was made to settle a bet made by Leland Stanford ( then governor of California ) that there was a time during a gallop when all four of a horse's hooves left the ground at the same time, an issue which had been debated for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. There was such a bet, and Eadweard Muybridge, who made this series did, in fact, take a photo demonstrating that all four of a horses hooves left the ground during a gallop, but this series was done later, using 12 separate cameras covering a span of about 20 feet.
