The lady is entirely colored with paint. She is wearing a black straw hat, a jacket with tight green sleeves and a round-collar, a half-sleeve short garment, red long skirt and black pointed shoes. The horse is standing with its head lowered down, mouth slightly open, ears pricked, long hair and the tail hanging naturally. The lady is riding the horse, holding the rein, looking forward with a dignified pose and peaceful expression, representing fittingly the ladies on the road in Tang Dynasty.
