First, I saw this beautiful photo on Facebook:

Then, I got in touch with my FB friend who’d posted it, who was also the photographer: Yogi Howe. And he sent me three more photos he’d taken:

All four of these photos, it turns out, are of CAA member Bob Alexander (of England). According to Yogi, Bob is the largest private owner of Gelderlander horses in the United Kingdom.

The first photo above shows Bob driving a pair of his Gelderlanders in mid-April, at an organized drive at Knepp Castle, in West Sussex. The vehicle is a Mail Phaeton built by Shanks, which was a London coach-building firm from 1840 until the very early twentieth century.

In the second photo, Bob is driving his tandem of chestnut Gelderlanders to a new four-wheeled Tandem Dog-cart. In the third photo, he’s driving his team of chestnut Gelderlanders. And in the fourth photo, he’s driving his six-horse “arrow” of Gelderlanders.

This video was posted on YouTube in 2009, and it shows two of Bob’s Gelderlander youngsters (at the time), on a training drive:
