I've never seen this one before. Have you? What an unusual location. Where is it?

It's followed by video of trick riders.

Hate the end of that video. The moron's making the horse go around in the small circus ring and the dork hanging on to the poor horse's tail. The horse is too kind and well behaved--he should have kicked the bejeebers out of the guy hanging on his tail!

Pretty interesting comparison between 2 different types of 'horsemanship.' Both are clearly after different end goals !;) That draft/vault horse looked like he was earning his oats with folks trying to 'learn the ropes' of the trick vaulting stuff.

The pyramid of guys on the "Roman riding" horses looked pretty brave. I wonder how often people got seriously hurt doing that kind of stuff ?

It was at Kenilworth (in NY) when they came over in the 50s (see pix in Seunigs book as well).
