  1. Interesting pieces, as usual. Hmm, in that cartoon – is that what your house looks like? In the 1958 ad, mom brings home the bacon in a flying saucer – which otherwise resembles a car, complete with steering wheel, rearview mirror and headlights. The 14th century illustration of a lady hunting with her hawk shows her sitting astride the horse, not side saddle, and holding the reins herself. Wonder if it was of a real person. This may interest you:, there is a nice piece of art work there as well, with horses and dogs.

    1. Thanks. Yes there have been improvements to the saddle to make it safer for the rider but what about the rider’s spine, hips and neck? That seems dangerous to me but that’s not an opinion formed from experience so could be wrong. It just looks so uncomfortable to me.
