Steeds of Renown – Let’s Ride !

17 Jun

Back in the Saddle Again / Gene Autry / 1937

Let's Ride ! 2

Most of us never had a horse.

We didn’t live on farms or ranches.

Being a Cowboy was just a dream.

But at the corner … there was an accessible Steed.

And for a Penny, a Nickel, a Dime … or Quarter ….

For a few seconds we could be the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, Dale,
or the Cisco Kid …

Lets' Ride!

    Awww, what fun post! I remember these, of course. I like to watch ‘American Pickers’ on the History Channel and if you can find these lovely antiques, they are in high demand. 🙂

      I’ve seen a couple around. Still galloping. But they are getting rare.
      I like American Restoration too. He fixes stuff up like this.

    My mother wouldn’t spend the time. I had a good imagination and fence rails. I named the sections of fence. Not as bad as it sounds 🙂

      Kids will find a way. Can’t stop their imagination.
      I see a couple of rides there for “1 cent.” They don’t even mint pennies in Canada anymore.
