The Horsewoman - A Practical Guide To Side-Saddle Riding

Alice M. Hayes

"The Horsewoman" is a vintage guide to horse riding aimed at women. This charming guide walks the reader through every step, from picking the right attire and saddles to the first mounting and beyond. This easy-to-understand guide will be of utility to absolute beginners, and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage equestrian literature. Contents include: "Sports and Utility", "Beginning to Ride", "Horses for Ladies", "Side-Saddles", "Bridles", "Riding Dress", "Mounting and Dismounting", "How to Hold the Reins", "The Seat", "Hands, Voice, Whip and Spur", "First Lessons in Riding", "Riding Cross Country", "Hacking", "Riding Without Reins", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on horses used for sports and utility.
