Josef Bingesser and his gelding “Hunter”: A well-established team – with one exception.

In the spring of 1957, 24-year-old Josef, whom everyone just calls “Sepp”, rides his gelding “Further” from his parents’ farm on country lanes to the municipality of Neukirch in eastern Switzerland. The local jumping competition is on the program there.

His fiancee bought a new lemon yellow dress with a floral pattern. She stands expectantly at the edge of the riding arena as Josef rides into the course in his cavalry uniform. The first jumps succeed. But then his idiosyncratic horse suddenly refuses the combination of two. Not once, but three times.
