This vintage lithographic postcard features a portrait of a group of nine horseback riders in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Note that the three women in the photograph are riding side saddle. The caption boasts that riders can ride horses every day in Hot Springs. Hot Springs was known for its bathhouses and hotels. Visitors flocked there to relax and improve their health. In addition, during the early twentieth century, Hot Springs was the site for many baseball training camps. The Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs were among the teams that made Hot Springs their training site. Babe Ruth walked the streets of the town and frequented the bath spas and gambled at the local horse racing track. This postcard was published by Charles Cutter who operated his company in Hot Springs. The postcard was likely published around 1909. The postcard is addressed to someone in Wisconsin and the message indicates that the sender is in the photograph and it was taken about twenty years before the postcard was sent.
