MILK WHITE CHARGER

Ashton opened his Circus in 1851 making it possibly the oldest circus in more or less continual operation in the English speaking world. Mr and Mrs Ashton performed athletic, gymnastic and olympian exercises on their horses; Mr Ashton on his bare back steed and Mrs Ashton in a flowing knee-length gown atop a padded horse.
