Social Etiquette Advice from A. Trollope

From p. 141 of The Way We Live Now.

"He stood for a while on the bridge watching his cousin as he cantered away upon the road...The young man was offensive in every possible way. Who does not know that ladies only are allowed to canter their friends' horses upon roads? A gentleman trots his horse, and his friend's horse."

For Heaven's sake young men, do not canter your friend's horse upon the road!
