German soldiers practice their marksmanship at the Karshorter Racecourse, Berlin, in 1935. Cavalry soldiers of the era would condition their horses to the stimulus of gunshots by shooting from their backs in this way, during calm conditions, so that they won’t panic during combat. Standing with both feet on the saddle was not common – they usually kept one foot in a stirrup.
