Sir Briggs, horse of Lord Tredegar, 17th Lancers, ridden at Balaklava, 1854, in camp in the Crimea, 1854.

Oil on canvas, by Alfred Frank de Prades, 1856.

While little is known about 'Sir Briggs' beyond the evidence of this painting, it is certain that he was a survivor of the famous Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaklava on 25 October 1854. His owner, Captain the Honourable Godfrey Charles Morgan (later Viscount Tredegar, 1831-1913), commanded a squadron of the 17th Regiment of Light Dragoons (Lancers) in the famous charge.
