Padi in the Saddle

One of the things Padi was proudest of was her horsemanship. She took dressage lessons at the D'Rossa School  in Makati, and used to tell the story of getting to ride one of President Marcos's horses.

She found it thrilling to control a horse with the tiniest movements; she said the rider's directions should be undetectable to an onlooker.
