Beautiful Blue Danube Waltz - 2002

The “piece de resistance” however was a rider who stood on the backs of a pair of two beautifully matched horses with three other matched horses running in front of them. The five horses were connected only by the reins in the rider’s hands, not to each other. He stood on the backs of the rear two horses with foam or sponge squares under his soft-looking shoes. It was an amazing bit of horseback riding and the horses were astonishingly well controlled and coordinated. They were a lovely dappled grey in color. This feat was called the “five in hand.”
