Let's drag ourselves out of the sadness of Scottsdale. Here are a few photos I dug out of this forum. Please share yours! Let's see photos of what "Halter" should, and could be - according to you.
Here's Tom McNair and you-know-who!! No fright, no flight - Morafic looks like he's enjoying the show. Tom looks like he hates that "Get Smart" suit he's wearing, but is putting up with it. Whip is an accessory - not even needed.
How about this one of Aladdinn and Erik Erlandsson - Aladdinn is scared to death, huh? Can you imagine this becoming vogue at the Big Shows - yes, we can!
How about Bey Shah here - I never saw him, but I guess he was one who let you know he was KING!! What this - no whip marks, no flattened ears and no crouching, weaving, glove-fisted clown on the lead?
My favorite for last - this could be me! I would LOVE to see our shows look like this again. The photo was taken at the Asil Cup in 1985 at Dillenburg and Madkour is shown with his then-owner, Erich Hagenlocher.
