Riding Habits While Mounted

Riding Habits While Mounted
Early 1870's stereoveiw of French ladies wearing riding habits while mounted. Note how long the skirts hang down. Falling off wearing long skirts and being caught up and dragged, was a constant worry for Equestriennes prior to the tailored safety skirt which was invented around the turn of the century.
