I walked into my barn one day and saw the back of a really really tall black guy. I thought he might be a basketball player. I immediately chastised myself for making such a generalization. But then he turned around and I recognized Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls. He was looking for a horse but we didn't have anything big enough!
Hell hath no fury like the chestnut thoroughbred mare
A slight variation on the perennial 'celebs who ride' topic, just because I saw Sidney Poitier in an old western the other day and I thought he looked pretty good on a horse, which is not the image that's normally summoned up by the words "Sidney Poitier."
His daughter rode Jr Hunters in the 60s. She rode a horse called "Sir".
Anyone else hear Lulu singing "To Sir with Love" upon seeing 'Sidney Poitier' and 'Sir' in the same post?
