Riders Check on Their Horses

FRIDAY MORNING--It was nice to see the riders show up to say hello to their horses and reassure them after their first night in the strange, cavernous building and the ordeal on the highway.

Here you see Oberbereiter Klaus Krzisch greeting the solo horse Siglavy Mantua I and Rider Herbert Seiberl offering an apple to Conversano Toscana I, the horse he rides in the quadrille. Rider Seiberl earned his rank as "rider" only in the spring on 2005.

I almost didn't recognize some of the riders in their "street" clothes...which turned out to be western cut jeans and boots for most of them!

Wow, mystery solved! Several of us were wondering if it could possibly be cost effective to ship the footing from venue to venue. Now we know! Thanks, Fran!
