This brainteaser has been floating around the Internet for a while and has caused millions of people to scratch their heads. I wasn’t able to find all the horses with 3 legs in this picture, no matter how I tried! But nevermind me, now it’s your turn.
So sit down, and take a long, hard look – How many horses with 3 legs you see in this picture?
Do you think you have what it takes to find all of the horses in this puzzle with three legs?
OK, think you have the answer? Drum roll, please!
The correct answer is ….
How many horses have ONLY three legs, the answer is five: one in the first row, one in the sixth row, and one in each of the last three rows.
Did you find all horses with 3 legs?
Many people get it wrong: Can you find all the horses in this picture?
In the 70s, the famous artist Bev Doolittle and her husband traveled to the southwestern US. During her trip, she was inspired to paint this impressive and strange painting. Ever since its creation, people have been asking one question: how many horses are there in the picture?
The beautiful painting uses a camouflaging effect which makes it tricky to make out the proud animals from the background.
How many horses are there in this picture?
Very few people manage to get it right on their first try. Can you do it? Ready, set, and go!

So it turns out that there are 5 horses in the picture. Four in the middle, and one to the far left.
Are there more?
Some people claim that there’s a sixth and the seventh horse in this painting.
These people say that there’s a sixth horse behind the ones in the middle. Personally, I don’t see it, but you might be one of the ones who can.
There’s also a rocky outcropping behind the herd, which can be interpreted as an abstract horse.
You judge for yourself – but personally, I think 5 horses is the right answer!
Apparently, only 1 in 7 people can spot the quintet on their first try!
