Naive needlework of a white horse in a landscape, probably American

A very charming naive needlework of a white horse in a landscape.  The piece is stitched to an advertising card of The American General Assurance Company, dated 1869, so I am presuming it was stitched c1970 and is hence American.

 

Housed in a maple frame with age related wear in places, and backing board.

 

A few perished stitches on the horse blanket and beneath his ears, which in my opinion do not detract at all from this unusual piece.
