Horse Trainers Offer Madonna Free Riding Lesson

ORLANDO, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – After Madonna’s fall from her horse yesterday (Aug. 16) which sent her to the hospital with cracked ribs, a broken collarbone and a broken hand, a professional riding instructor is offering her free riding lessons.

Gary Lashinsky, the producer of an upcoming U.S. tour of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna’s Royal Lipizzaner Horses, is offering up the school’s chief rider, Hans Riegler, to train the Material Girl.

The U.S. tour starts Nov. 5 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of U.S. General George Patton’s role in rescuing the Lipizzaners from extinction at the hands of the Nazis in Austria at the end of World War II.

Lashinsky claims these are the “finest horses in the world” and are “better trained,” and says working with the former war horses will “help [Madonna] with her own horses.”

He says it would be a rare opportunity for Madonna, one that few other people in the world will ever have.
