Looking back

 

This circa-1965 photo shows Woodside resident Delia Fleishhacker Ehrlich riding English-style on Country Gal, a prizewinning American three-gaited saddle horse, according to a description in the Woodside history book by Thalia Lubin and Bob Dougherty.

Ms. Ehlich is a member of the Woodside History Committee, which published the history book, and spends her summers in a William Wurster-designed house at the Fleishhacker estate in Woodside, according to the book.

And about that distinctive hat: Because Country Gal is a three-gaited horse, Ms. Ehlich is wearing the traditional top hat rather than the bowler hat one would wear astride a five-gaited horse.
