Donated to the Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt, New Zealand, by Flora Scales's sister, Mrs M. Hamersley, in 1971. Mrs Hamersley supplied the alternative title Study of Horse. This painting was subsequently retitled The White Horse.
Scales in conversation with M. de Lange, 1983, said this work was painted at a summer school in Norfolk, England, arranged by Frank Calderon during her time studying at the W. Frank Calderon School of Animal Painting, London, England, which Scales attended 1908-1912.
