Previously a main method of transportation around the city, you don't see too many horses trotting around the centre of London these days. Just in time for the Grand National this weekend, we've wheeled out some photos of the capital's finest equine offerings.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their images via the Londonist Flickr pool: Adam Thompson, Andrew Smith, Andy Worthington, cdb41, John Esslinger, John Kortland, joephoto, Ken, Odddutch, Robert Moore, Simone Sechi, Steve Fitch.
