Ride a Rock Horse is the second solo album by The Who's lead singer, Roger Daltrey. It was first released in 1975.[3] Songs were recorded during Daltrey's filming commitments for Ken Russell's film Lisztomania. The album's cover which is photographed and designed by Daltrey's cousin Graham Hughes is known as remarkable for depicting the singer as a rampant centaur.[4]

The song "Come and Get Your Love" reached number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the album reached number 14 in the UK and number 28 in the US.[5]
