You Shall Go to the Ball. Even If You’re a Horse

The Viennese Opera Ball at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York features a surrey drawn by two greys circling the dance floor with two ballet dancers on board. There’s a nice little New York Times blog piece here – with photos – about the logistics of getting two 17hh standardbreds into an elevator, through a hotel kitchen and into the ballroom. And out again.
