The above is based on Sam Loyd’s ‘Saddle the Horse’ puzzle of 1871. His version, however, was likely derived from the ‘Dead Dogs Puzzle’ which appeared in an 1849 book The Family Friend.
Interestingly, when P.T. Barnum came across Loyd’s puzzle, he supposedly bought it for $10,000 (a lot of money back then!) and handed it out to the millions of people who visited his circus- making it one of the most popular puzzles of all time.
