1676 Steinbach Nutcracker Rider
Thereís no more wonderful joy of
course, than to fly over the earth on the back of a horse!
Our nutcracker has also heard this
saying. So a horse had to be brought here to ride not a donkey, mule or
elephant no, a proper beautiful Hannoverian horse, about 60 of
which we have in our famous Hohenhameln riding-school in the riding
club. Here we get our German riders fit for the Olympic games. But our
nutcrackers were always quicker and longer at the Olympic station than
Now, our nutcracker has of course
fittingly chosen a rocking horse. It goes up at the back and front
copied exactly in the Hohenhameln riding-school.
Now of course you must imagine that
such a mounted figure among our nutcrackers could be a magnificat
cuirassier, blue dragoon, red husar or ulan. In the good old days there
were fine class distinctions! Today itís the same with the car
and arenít there enormous differences?
So, watch out our nutcracker on
horseback is certainly one of the most distinguished kind!
