    I was thinking the same thing.

    This is from the 1956 movie called The Swan. I beleive the horse is a saddlebred as there were other saddlebreds in the movie.

    Both crossed and uncrossed are acceptable.

    One way is how the military was taught and the other the normal way but I forget which was which.

    I thought that looked like the Biltmore in the background, and indeed the film was made in NC, using the Biltmore House, Lake Junaluska, etc. Looks like a fun movie.
