On a foggy Monday morning we landed at an island near Budapest where we were taken by buggy to a Magyar (Hungarian) Cowboy ranch to watch an amazing display of horsemanship
The horses are called Lippizaner and are very impressive
In war it was a valuable skill to be able to get the horse down on the ground, an unnatural position
a little humor from the cowboy
an impressive display
imagine driving five horses while straddling two of them!
Russ tried his hand at the whip and broke an empty wine bottle on the second try!
we gave Russ an ovation and he got to bring home some Hungarian wine
with the barkeep at the ranch
