I have to quote myself. I was wrong about which book it was. The picture is in a book by Bill Burke. The Swedish title it "Tidernas story", which would be something like "Story of the times" or something.

It could be. His shirt might be red and there´s some pictures of him riding with that one in 1970. He also seems to be slim. But looking at his face, it´s hard to decide if it´s 1970 or 1975 from this distance.

However, I haven´t seen this picture anyplace else before.

Kind regards

It's definitely from summer 1970, and the other photos we have of Elvis in that shirt, belt and on that horse.

I think we all agree. Bill Burke has mixed up the dates on few more occasions in that book.
