Budweiser Clydesdales

St. Louis, MO

On April 7, 1933, August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch III surprised their father, August A. Busch, Sr., with the gift of a six-horse Clydesdale hitch to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition.  The Clydesdales made a stop in Washington, D.C., in April 1933 to reenact the delivery of one of the first cases of Budweiser to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Today, the Budweiser Clydesdales continue to be an enduring symbol of the brewer’s heritage, tradition and commitment to quality.

The Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society

San Diego, CA

The Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society is an educational history organization for period-accurate, upscale, equine re-enactment. There are over two dozen members who perform in exhibits such as Night of the Horse and Equestfest and can be seen at many local events throughout the year.

Members are well versed in historical costuming as well as being avid equestrians in both riding and driving. All the “costumes” are custom made, one-of-a-kind originals and are designed and sewn by the members. The mission of the Victorian Roses is to present living history and to educate the public on aspects of the Victorian Era.

The Victorian Roses raise money to support horse rescue in San Diego. Their annual fundraiser, the Wild West Casino Night, has raised thousands of dollars for this important cause.

San Diego, CA

A step back in time takes us to the Renaissance Period. The beautiful all black horses are the Friesian and originated in Holland. During the Renaissance they were used by Knights in battle. Nobility enjoyed them as flashy carriage horses. They were even used on the farms as an overall work horse with time to ride them for pleasure. They have proven to be a valuable horse in many situations. We have a wonderful display of these horses with riders dressed to showcase Renaissance attire.
