Yes but it sounds less...naughty than the 1894 ad!

I don't know what I like the most, the fact that the woman is riding amazon style or the text about the countess of Abderdeen saying that the Saddle had given her complete satisfaction!

Those princesses of Wales really are bad girls! ;- )

Well, riding sidesaddle makes it a little less naughty than if she was straddling the 'horse'!

Compare this!.

True, but still, it cures hysteria!

Possibly by 'bringing all the VITAL ORGANS into INSPIRITING ACTION'.

The use of ALL CAPS for half the words says it all.

Ahh... so you know what the cure for hysteria is. Wonder if anyone got that.

Funnily enough, yesterday morning, as we were analysing an extract from Mein Kampf, I had to explain to my students what "hysterical" really means.

This is wonderful! Love that it cures hysteria and the quote from The Lancet is priceless, and very true!
