Dress-down Friday equestrian special

In honour of the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse which begins today, here is a look at some of our favourite strange flowers in equestrian elegance mode.  There’s Renée Sintenis (again), Hermann Pückler-Muskau in an early drag race with a coach, while Lord Berners, ever the individualist, has decided to paint rather than ride his mount. Sissi‘s imperial sidesaddle glamour could never be encompassed by just one post; find more here.

  1. Good post, James. Thank you. Here in Middleburg, VA, no year of the horse goes unnoticed, and I will forward this link prodigiously. We just had six months of Munnings here, which was heaven.
