We’re going riding.
Why does Father insist on me riding side saddle? I don’t care if it’s ladylike. I want to be free and gallop through the forest on my own and practice my jumping. It’s certainly more fun than trying to sit properly on my horse... I can barely balance - never mind ride - side saddle. My hat
falls in my eyes and my long skirt and riding habit gets tangled in the horse’s
legs. I’ve heard of so many horrible accidents that happen to the ladies who ride side saddle - why do they still insist?
