- John S. Rarey and Cruiser Painting
- This portrait was painted by Miner Kilbourne Kellogg. It shows John Solomon Rarey and Cruiser. Rarey (1827-1866), a native of Groveport, Ohio, gained international fame using kindness, firmness, and patience to train previously unmanageable horses. His innovative methods captured international attention and secured him invitations to tour Europe, Canada, and Russia. In what was perhaps the most famous of his demonstrations, Rarey tamed a vicious horse named Cruiser in three hours. Rarey was given the horse as a reward for his skill. He then went on to exhibit Cruiser and his techniques throughout the U.S. and Europe. Miner Kilbourne Kellogg (1814-1889), was born in New York but moved to Cincinnati with his family as a young boy. Kellogg was known for his portraits, landscapes, and religious scenes, and for arranging art exhibitions. (Om1438_001)
