Right hand dominance prevails, therefore the teamster wants to sit on the LEFT horse so that his right arm (and lash) is toward the middle. Sitting on the left horse would require crossing the lash over his his own mount, and indeed the left rear horse might be unreachable.
No, he’s sitting on the left horse. You want your whip hand to be in the middle of the horses, so you can lash them all easily. And if you’re right-handed, that’s your whip hand, so that means you have to sit to the left of center.
I’m trying to work out whether this is a complete howler by Cecil, or just the mistake that you point out. Because no matter what they were selling domestically, they were (and are) still producing both versions for export. :dubious:
News flash: Parliament has decreed that next year the UK will switch to driving on the right hand side of the road. However, in order to reduce mass confusion the change will be implemented in phases. Starting Feb. 1, all lorries and buses will begin driving on the right side, and passenger cars will switch over on June 1.
