Sometimes, real-life events make Scripture sink deeper into our hearts than any sermon or Sunday school class. Rosie couldn’t have imagined that bull riding, a kind Amish family, and a mystery involving five Saddlebred horses would help her come to truly understand the commandment Jesus called the greatest: “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.”
Mark 12:30 KJV

Amish Buggy Styles
These pages show photos of different types and colors for Amish buggies. The styles and regulations vary from one Amish community to the next. The second link shows a super-fancy buggy that wouldn't be typical for most Amish to have.
This is video of Wild Eyed and Wicked, I believe in 2001. Beautiful horse. Such a tragedy. :(
Some of the video in this one is pretty grainy, but it shows quotes and news clips from the time of the poisonings.

I'm not bothered by rodeo bull riding. The bulls have a tremendous advantage over the men who try to ride them, but this bothers me. Poor sheep! And I think some kid will be seriously hurt doing this at some point.
