DAISY'S RED RYDER GUN BOOK "How to Saddle and Mount"

For all you tenderfoots (tenderfeet?) who never rode a horse...
...convenient instructions and demonstration from the legendary Red Ryder, star of comic books, newspaper comic strips, dramatic radio, and movies.
(But not TV!
There were two different pilots shot in the 1950s for a Red Ryder TV series.
Neither sold!)
Now, was that so hard?
This lesson in equestrianism was taken from the Daisy's Red Ryder Gun Book published in 1955 by Daisy Manufacturing Co.
Yes, the same Daisy who produced numerous versions of BB guns from the 1930s to the present.
But not the "Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time" seen in the movie A Christmas Story.
The 1938 rifle didn't have the compass and timepiece as seen HERE.
The "How to Saddle and Mount" feature was written and illustrated by Red Ryder creator Fred Harmon and his studio, and appears to be exclusive to this HTF one-shot.
