Lovely copy in brown tweedy looking paper covered boards in VG pictorial facsimile dj with light cup ring pull on cover and wear/chips at corner. Displays well in mylar sleeve. No names, tears or soil within, 214 page block tight and bright. Fictional story for young and old. When Dandy's posh Aunt shows up and declares that she has no more manners than a mongrel puppy, the young Clark's fear for the worst. And sure enough, Papa declares that it is time for Dandy to stop acting like one of the Clark boys and learn to take her place as mistress of the plantation household. Side Saddle and long skirts for Dandy who had ridden like a buckskinned frontiersman ever since she could remember! Dainty Cousin Polly Smythe to come from Williamsburg and teach the steps of the minuet, the fingering of the spinet. Bemba, the stately housekeeper to instruct the slippery-fingered Dandy in the use of herbs and poultices. Small wonder she nearly decided to join the militia with her brother Chris. How events conspired to change her mind is a delightful story. A Shawnee raid and a secret cave provide excitement and a handsome young Bill Rutherford lends the final impetus for Dandy's transformation.

Based on the classic work, Side-Saddle, and now divided into five parts; Position, the Horse Paces, The Aids, Schooling, Jumping, plus several appendices which deal with such things as the care and fitting of the saddle and suppling exercises for the rider, it is a meticulous study of the art of side-saddle.

There is important coverage of jumping and a chapter devoted to rein aids. Mrs. Houblon's Side-Saddle shows how all the advantages of the balanced seat may be applied in side-saddle riding, explaining this with a detailed analysis of the horse's movement both on the flat and when jumping. It is a clear and thoughtful guide to the whole art of side-saddle horsemanship and is especially relevant to today's equestrian requirements. The text is vividly supported by many original photographs with the addition of new ones which have been especially commissioned for this edition.
