Gloria & Nita (shown here)

rode a pair of these buggies

in the end rings while Trevor

rode dressage in ring 2

As depicted here in the

"Old Garden" #3

That tall curved gooseneck

allowed the horse to turn

completely around

Jim Royal said...

Weren't the wheels trimmed in tiny lights? We were with Mr. Bale on Sally Chipperfield's Circus in England in 1983, where he presented Jim Clubb's liberty horses. A delightful man and he cooked a mean spaghetti.

Chic Silber said...

Yes indeed Jim there were

not only the wheels but the

entire frame & gooseneck

After many years in the barn

much of the electrical stuff

had deteriorated very badly

They brought the 2 buggies

to my shop where we replaced

all the wiring & sockets as

well as all the commutators

Chic Silber said...

I guess they might be back

in the barn yet to this day

I'll have to ask Gloria
