horse's head

There are very many horses and ponies in Wimbledon - heading off for, and heading back from, rides on the Common, coming from the stables behind the Dog and Fox - that used to be Hilcote - and from the stables at the top of Hillside - now the Ridgeway Stables, formerly - ah, the formality of long ago - the Ridgeway School of Equitation.  And there are people wearing riding boots having coffee in Paul's, and - well, lots of other horsey things, like this penny-in-the-slot (only I'm sure it's not a penny any more ...) equine offering rides outside the shops in Church Road.  No wonder that I grew up whinnying more mellifluously than I sing ...
