Throwback Thursday: Horses, History And New York

It's been more than a decade since horses last jumped in the heart of New York City, so as the Central Park Horse Show kicks off, we take a look back at some of the legends that showed at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden. 

The year was 1955. Wilson Dennehy won all three major equitation finals offered at the time—the AHSA Medal, the ASPCA Maclay and the USET. Top hunter Duke Of Paeonian and jumper Riviera Wonder won. And just look at the jump the small pony hunter champion is jumping!
