Your blogger has made a mistake. In the early days of the blog, we reported that only white stallions would be coming to the USA. To our delight, we announce that Favory Alea II is enjoying the tour. He is a 25-year-old dark brown stallion (almost black but not quite) with some unusual white markings on his pasterns...and we'll have more to tell you about him in the days and weeks to come!

In this photo you can see Alea waiting for his curtain call, while a groom brushes any flecks of footing off his legs with a soft brush.

No, not on this tour. They may be back in a few years to do a western tour of the U.S. though. Check out some of the other comments on the blog for more info.

We horse people in California are VERY disappointed there is no tour headed near our way! In December 1995 I had the opportunity to actually visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, but it was EMPTY! And now that I am home, in California, I still find a way to miss them! COME TO CALIFORNIA!
