Fanastic Photos of Chariots Found in Facebook

Someone posted this photo of  miniature horses pulling a chariot on my wall in Facebook.
I was able to track down the source: Kampfwagenrennen - BEN HUR LIVE on a Facebook page and are Copyrighted by Andrea Reitthaler (Reitthaler Andrea '08). They are great action photos and Andrea does a fanastic job of capturing the details in all her photos.
In addition the event and her photograph provide a careful study of the various chariots and Roman uniforms of the drivers may help other miniature horse owners that want to show in chariot class an idea for designing their chariots.

Also if you check out the Kampfwagenrennen Facebook site you can read more about the event.
There is also a website where the story about the Das Kampfwagenrennen Chariot Race in 2010 and prior events were held.
If you google videos kampfwagenrennen you will also find a great many video on YouTube with costumes and events include chariot races.
This link will take you to the opening parade (it is only a segment of the event) but there are lots of Roman costumes.
