Thanks for sharing that, Anne. My dad was in the cavalry at Ft. Riley at the same time. Years later, when we would drive through the fort, he would point out the buildings that had been the stables, riding halls etc. I also remember him telling about riding cross-country rides up and down the rugged Kansas hills--not at a leisurely walk--ponying 2 horses!
I wish there were more video of him riding. That looked like a pretty well-executed turn on the haunches to me. Beautiful seat, lovely soft hands, I was SO LUCKY to get my early training with one of these old gents!!
