Inscription.  

A one-of-a-kind act that his never been duplicated and the most recognized comedy act in circus history, George and his partner the mule Nebraska performed over 25 years together. George, along with his beloved wife Catherine and family came to America from England in 1955 with their riding act, the Dorchester Troupe. He had performed all over the world, and won three gold medals as a bareback rider. George was not only an amazing performer and animal trainer, he also had a true passion for comedy, and a real gift for making people laugh, for which he is remembered most of all.
