"My great love for the horse dates back to my earliest childhood days on a farm in Riedlingsdorf, Austria with an abundance of animals and birds and all of nature's other wonders.    I shall always remember a specific experience, when I was barely three years old, while playing, I put my arms around a white rocking horse, and at that instant, I felt a strong sense of security.  That moment was the beginning of my love for the horse."  GUSTAV REHBERGER     Read more
