Riding in the Sky
Riding in the Sky is #56 in the Camfield series and was published in April 1988. Filipa Seymour agrees to impersonate a Pretty Horse Breaker and help her brother win a contest that the Marquis of Kilne is hosting. However, it gets sticky when the Marquis makes her a shocking offer!
This is an interesting cover of the parade with the contestants dressed up and riding their horses. We see the hero, not dressed in costume, talking to the heroine in her medieval outfit. The 1860's were the height of fame for the Pretty Horse Breakers, in London.
