ON WOMEN RIDING SIDE-SADDLE
All women, of all ages and shapes, still look better side-saddle than ever they can astride. That's my opinion, and I stick to it. Granted, a girl with a lovely figure looks really ravishing in well-made boots and breeches, astride a beautifully turned out blood-horse; but she would look even more ravishing were she to ride the same creature side-saddle, with a well-cut London habit and a silk hat.
