Horseback Riding. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 28 April 1877

Horseback Riding. Where we have so many horses, and for a considerable part of the year such poor roads, it seems remarkable that we do not ride more. Our people prefer to drag through the mud and over roads in buggies and phaetons. Even of country bred boys and girls, mare than half can not sit a horse with grace, comfort, or safety, and as to city-bred youths some arc sent to riding schools and make fair riders, but never practice it, while a few not ono in a hundred of these--enjoy a gallop through tho park before breakfast or in the afternoon once in six months Can it bo that the general scntimcntof the community, which is opposed to a horse going in any other gait than a walk, has had tho effect ; te cause us. to forego riding ? Tho increase of liing diseases, weakness of the spine, catarrh, &c, among men of sedentary pursuits, may perhaps in a measure bo accounted for by fiving up this exerc-isoi Tho fact that a riving<horso being an easy, pleasant, welhtrai...
