In the black-and-white photo, two students are having a “horsey” ride in the middle of a field. The photograph was taken in the country around short grass, a telephone pole, and bare trees. One student, a college boy, is posed on all fours with both hands and knees on the ground while the other student's legs straddle the sides of his body, sitting on his back. The top student’s right hand is placed on the bottom student’s back. The top student’s head is tilted down while his head is turned over his shoulder, so they are looking at each other. Both students wear torn, and oversized clothing, like a hobo would wear. The top student wears a crumpled top hat and an oversized button-up shirt over a sweater. The young man wears a long coat reaching his knees, a bowler hat, long socks, and slip-on shoes.
