Question for the Durland kin

Does anyone know who painted the foxhunt mural above the polo arena?

Durland's Riding Academy

Wow, this is really great to see. William Durland, owner of Durland's Riding Academy, was my great-great Uncle and it is so fun to see these pictures that I never knew about. I think that the NBA could learn a few tricks from them!

[That's interesting, and thanks. There was an article in the New York Times a few years ago about the building and the academy that might be in the archive section of the NYT web site. - Dave]

Horse basketball

I wonder if they dribbled. The players, I mean.
