Milly Capell

Capell and her performing horse and hunting dogs. Judging from yesterday’s audience this is about the strongest animal act that we have ever imported. The woman is a strikingly pretty girl and the horse is a beauty. She does no riding at all but puts the animal through a lot of high grade training movements, which he [horse] accomplishes with wonderful accuracy and grace. The finish of the act where she and her hose to the march around the stage with the dogs cutting figure 8’s between their limbs and the fore and hand limbs of the horse, makes a tremendous hit. I have extended her time on the circuit from four to seven weeks. 10 minutes; full stage.
