    That figures yet, I did have a photo in a book of about 1910 of a leopard spotted pony described as "grand type and a great lepper".
    However in the 1970's out with the Bramham I was on a skewbald and was told to "take the cow to the rear of the field"

    Know what you mean.
    Wait 'til Warhorse hits the screens I've seen some of the scenes and all I can say is "Wrong bridle".

    I heard it was the Avon Vale but I suppose it would make more sense for it to be the Vine and Craven, sure isn't Highclere in their country?

    Not unless they have a leather loop on one end for the thong and lash? Do sidesaddle whips have bone "gate hooks" on the top end?? In one shot the lady did have a thong attached ..but still holding it the wrong way anyway,shortly before ,no lash!! Pathetic.
