Brrrr! Weatherbeeta Takes the Chill Off!
It snowed in Philadelphia for Thanksgiving but the stallions of the Spanish Riding School were well-equipped with new "Freestyle" Weatherbeeta blankets.
This horse is being lead by stable manager Johannes. The horse is wearing a cavesson, which is interesting, instead of a soft head collar (halter). Cavessons are used for training and lungeing.
My guess is that the blankets were a bit tough to fit. The Lipizzans are on the small side, but their chests are quite broad. The length measurement could be deceiving!
