Re: [RC] ultimate endurance ride - Barbara McCrary

His last name was Tschiffly or Tscheffly (spelling?) but I don't remember his first name.  And I think the second horse's name was Mano ("hand" in Spanish), if my memory is accurate.

Subject: [RC] ultimate endurance ride

Last week I was talking to a friend about endurance riding and she mentioned the fact that in 1925 or 1926 ( she was 5-6 year old at that time and living on a ranch close to Laredo, TX) she met a man who was on a ride with two horses from Argentina to Washington DC. He spend the night at their ranch and let her (my friend) sit on his horses. She has a beautiful picture of this endurance rider posing with his two horses at their ranch.  She does not remember the rider's name, but she knows that the horses were named "Gato" and "Mancho".  She knows he wrote a book about his travels which we both would love to read.  Does anybody know this person's name?
Thanks,
