The Horses

Please enjoy this archival album of the horses that Charles de Kunffy trained during his classical horsemanship education in Budapest, Hungary.

Some may wonder why this archive contains primarily stadium and cross-country jumping pictures when Charles was also trained in dressage. 1956, a quarter-million Hungarians, including Charles de Kunffy, fled the country to escape the brutal invasion of Soviet communists. The Ambassador of Italy was called upon to save Charles's precious photo albums. Sadly he was only able to seize the album of jumping images.
