For added comfort while studying and drawing for long periods, Stud Horses have been outfitted with a cushioned seat. Second is the standing position where the Stud Horse acts as a drafting table. Third is the easel position. In this position the Stud Horse can hold your canvas for on location or in studio paintings.
