Why is riding so popular? Why do children take to the saddle like the hordes of Genghis Khan? The answer is simple. The horse is the transport of the future. In a few short years from now when traffic has jammed the last open spaces on the roads, the internal combustion engine will be as obsolete as the hot air balloon. When that day comes, woe to those who have not learned how to get into a saddle--and studied the art of staying there.Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 65-19957
