    Thanks for the additional information. As the Hauptreitschule was only founded in 1937, the absence of the sleeve diamond is instantly explained.

    I wonder when the other photo (of that gentleman with what may well be horse drool on his shoulder) was taken.
    The wearing of the other ranks' white collar patch piping, the cuff title's "handwritten-style" script and the wear of the early Deutsches Reiter- und Fahrer-Abzeichen (which was only awarded from 1926 to 1929 and replaced by the separate riders' and drivers' badges in 1930) would tempt me to date it to no later than 1934... were it not for the cap eagle, which surely came about only in 1936.

    Horse drool and foetid woolens all go together.
    damit, basta.

    HPL brings up an interesting point about the insignia combination on the rider wearing the Oberabschnitte cuffband. The cap badges don't seem to fit with the early insignia. I am not sure when the Oberabschnitte titles for the SS-Reiterstuerme attached directly to the Oberabschnitte were discontinued but they no longer appear in the 1936 price list. Unfortunately the early organisation of both the cavalry and motorised units of the Allgmeine-SS is not quite as easy to follow as some of the other branches.
    The photo also gives the impression that it was taken at the same time as the one of Temme, but perhaps that's just the pose.

    It looks to me as if both photos were taken in the same place judging only from the jumping horse images in the background of each and the similarity of the pose. The SS Reiter with the Oberabschnitte title has not updated his insignia only his cap. Thanks.

    If the evidence of some twenty seven uniforms in my possession is any guide, I think that persons retained obsolete insignia despite further service. Such is also evident in the pandemonium in the official commentary
    in the RZM and SS orders.

    Thanks for all the learned reflection.

    A lesson you have taught well to those of us who read your posts. Thanks F-B. I just noticed the photo credits of the SS Reiter images is to none other than Mr. Delich. Thanks Wim and Mr. Delich for sharing your images.

    Perhaps the most famous SS Horseman.

    Thank you F-B for the nice sentiment I truly appreciate it.

    Here we see a cousin of the Black Reiter ensemble. I cant remember where I saved the images from. Perhaps someone knows this tunic. Thanks.

    The Nordwest black tunic belongs or belonged to a high roller collector in the US midwest. Dave Delich showed me these pictures and I posted them here at some point.
    I would sorely like said tunic, to be sure.

    Thanks to all who post such material. I cannot resist the observation that, in reality, Fegelein really was a monster, and his behavior at the end of the war garnered him his just deserts.

    Another Allgemeine SS tunic with two shoulder boards. However I think the OP did not have anything like this in mind. I hope you like the images. Thanks.
