A loverly fuck-ton of horse-riding references.
So there are a few ways people ride horses. The first way is the “proper way”; the stuff they teach you in riding class where you’re supposed to sit up straight so your spine telescopes into your anus when the horse gets jumpy (*pulls reins on sarcasm* Whoaaa, whoaaa boy!). It would be wise to research this a bit if your character is a riding student or something of the sort. There’s a practicality behind it, for the structure of your riding position aids in controlling the horse. Then there’s the racing pose where you’re ass isn’t touching the horse at all (you rely on stirrups; with this one, you’re pretty much required to have a saddle to make this work… I could conceive some ways one could do without, but I’m not that motivated at the moment). This is something you also ought to read up on. Then there’s the type where no “official” rules were learned, so the person adopted a position that seemed to work for their needs (cue for “get creative, home-slice”). And, just as a side note, if you’re not male and you’re drawing a male riding a horse… Please. Please. Please. Please. Please. For the love of all that is good in this world… don’t forget we have balls, and that those balls on the spine of a horse can hurt like a motherfucker (which is why so many of us keep our asses off the seat when starting out). If the horse is jumping around, and we ourselves are well-hung, it’s not gonna be pretty. We have a little more consideration for our groin, so in most cases, we’ll be elevated from the seat a bit (unless your character is a pro and has acclimatized to the abuse and/or learned how to sit properly). In fact, we usually deal with this problem by pushing our hips forward when the horse’s hooves touch the ground; this way our buns of steal can take the impact and not our hopes and dreams (so it kinda looks like we’re grinding on the seat as the horse is going… but trust me, it’s for a good cause).

Married, but separated on different plantations William and Ellen Craft devised a plan to escape the horrors of slavery.
Ellen, who was very fair-skinned, passed as a young white woman. Her husband William played her doting servant.They set out on December 21, 1848 and traveled luxuriously by train and ferry. During a four-day trip they were almost thwarted, but quick wits and good old-fashioned luck kept them on their way. After arriving in the free city of Philadelphia they were given a crash course in reading and writing. After a short stay, they moved to Boston where William resumed work as a cabinetmaker and Ellen became a seamstress. Two year later slave catchers showed up, but they quickly fled to England to avoid their captors. They remained in Europe for over 20 years and had five children.
In 1860, the couple wrote “Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom,” chronicling the escape. The Craft’s returned to the United States in the 1870s and established a school for newly freed African Americans.

but seriously when did we all start saying “yo”
Actually, if you really want to know, “Io” (pronounced “yo”) was a Latin … exclamation that sort of meant “Oh” or “Hey”. The common greeting for the holiday of Saturnalia was “Io Saturnalia!”
So we started saying “yo” about 2500 years ago, give or take a few hundred years.
