    Default Spanish Riding School Rehearsing at Wembley - 1969

    Who here recognizes the horses and riders?

    Sigh....it is somewhat disheartening to me that this has been up for a day and only has had one view! I watched the video, not expecting to recognize any riders or horses, but perhaps to be able to pick out the first SRS bereiter I started training with (in my preteen years) possibly as a younger rider just promoted from eleve. i did not see Hubert though. He is not hard to pick out as he was probably the tallest rider ever had at the SRS. I took my first ever dressage lessons with him when I was a kid. Apparently, Carol Lavell also trained with him....a whole 'nother story. Anywho, did not see him. And how has this been up for a day and only one person looked at it?? Dressage people, hello??!

    What a fabulous video. THe one thing watching them always brings to mind is they stay SOUND. Into their twenties! Still working!

    Why is it that your average dressage horse does not?

    Maybe that is another thread altogether!

    SIZE seems to be one reason. Morgans are similar in the longevity of their useful lives.

    I recognize Handler, Lauscha, Tschautscher, Eichinger (with horse on the long rein), and Kottas.
