The horses are dressed for the occasion, beautiful and many having braided manes. Style and elegance for the equine performers. The setting was Santa Anita Park in
I was looking for a Ruby Tuesday picture, so I was looking through my '84 Olympic photo book, saw these and decided to post here. The weather was hot that day, and the L.A. Basin pollutants at the track were an irritant. I was enthralled by the style of it all. Obviously, I am not of old money to be nominated a member of an Equestrian riding club. My wheelchair might be an impediment to finding a sponsor also. But the style, grace and athleticism of the horse and rider were so unique. I enjoyed it all.
