Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOTS: HIND LEG HORSES #2 WITH RIDERS





Here are some Hind Leg Horses through the years with riders, & a couple in an unusual situation wih a Carraige. The top set of photos are Mary Levett, I believe this photo is from Ringling in the 1920's, & Claude Veloise, Rinling Bros. 1948; the next two are Harry Herrmann of The Hermann Royal Lippizan Show, & Ingeborg Rhodin, Ringling Bros. 1967; then is Napolean Zamperla, & Kim Sue Wong(Valla); and finally with the carriages is Frieda Krone, with Circus Krone in 1941, & Dawnita Bale on Ringling Bros. in 1963.

Just as a non horse persons view, The prettyest pictures are of horses and poneys with a looser head. Some pictures look like the horses are looking at their feet and reined in so tight it looks unnatural. I remember un checking these lines for a hind leg walk. Is there a special reason these reins are buckled so tight and keeping the head looking down at the ground? Remember I am not a horse person and just observing.
