Baroque Equestrian portrait

Salvete Omnes,
back to my favorite Baroque period in equestrian history and some very fine equestrian portraits of the first half of the XVII century.
do note the horses, their color, tack (long shanked curb-bit) and riding aids like spurs, armor, and finally the rein holding hand's position as well as the seat and legs.

the identities of the men portrayed is given in the titles of each painting - all works come from wikimedia commons
