He writes a best-selling book about his adventures, "Tschiffely's Ride," then sets off on a new horse to explore rural 1930s Britain. Through the ancient New Forest, over the lonely mountains of Wales, and across the rugged landscape of Scotland, the renowned author investigated the nooks and crannies of this island kingdom. Mounted on his gentle Cob mare, Violet, Tschiffely details the last roving adventure of its kind. "Bridle Paths" is a final poetic look at a now-vanished Britain, as it was before the advent of suburbia changed it forever. This superb book is amply illustrated with Tschiffely's own pencil drawings. As a bonus, it includes a special appendix listing the equipment used by the mounted traveler, as well as detailed sketches of the method he used to pack his horse. No equestrian travel collection is complete without this classic tale....

    Oh, how things have changed! I would love to do something like this, just get on my horse and wander all over the country, visiting what and who I like. But the England that is explored in this book is long gone!The author acyually rides through the area where I stable my own horse - he rides from Worcester to Leominster, via Knightwick - a village within hacking distant of my yard. He would be horrified to try and ride it now - the busy A road that carves through the Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside is no longer safe for us equestrians to ride along :(.There is also a really sweet bit where he rides through the middle of Oxford - again, not something that could be attempted now, without road closures, health and safety, and nerves of steelI did enjoy reading this short book, but I would of liked to read more about his horse. She if is only mentioned in passing here and there, which is a shame.

    I found this book in a pile about to be binned! Old fashioned but a classic horse book. A really good view of Britain in the 1940s Recently a doctor and his friend copied this idea on the 'horse and country' channel. It wasn't a patch on this book and I was most miffed that they gave no credit to Tschiffely.
