    Excerpt from Scenes From the Saddle

    HE rider to a meet of an unfashionable hunt has in these days usually a solitary ride. Even with these lesser-known packs many of those who hunt regularly motor to the meet, and the habitual rider on is in so decided a minority that only infrequently does he pick up a companion on his way. A two hours' solitary ride, or it may be more, provides opportunity for cogitations and for changes in the details of the surrounding picture.

    There are various types of morning at nine o'clock in the winter months. For the weather-prospecting rider the dull, cold, windy and foggy morning is the least attractive. A thoroughly thick or thoroughly frosty morning puts hunting out of the question and raises no debate. A mild though wet outlook is encouraging, presenting as it does a prospect of a day of good scent. Few mornings are so bad as they may appear to be from the window, and many of poor appearance are reasonably good company on the way to the meet.

    It is natural that in normal times the re¿ections presenting themselves should be heavy or light, dark or bright, in con sonance with the surroundings of the way, but in these days of unprecedented trouble, to even the brightest morning there is looming behind a dark background. In such days the rider has to ask himself whether it were better that riders did not ride, to which question the natural speculation follows as to what alternative livelihood those of advanced age who are engaged in stable work would find if no longer employed in their trade. Such thoughts are dark and dreary companions for a pleasure outing.
