The painter discovered his preference for horses in his youth when he spent a large part of his free time in the Birkenfeld post office. There he always had horses in mind as models for his drawings. In the years before and after the turn of the century, Emil Volkers concentrated largely on documentary horse portraits, which were particularly popular with racehorse owners.
