Saddle Another Pony
This is another tune called Saddle The Pony, I got it from Levey’s Dance Music of Ireland, no.43. The abc I’ve uploaded shows where I play some triplets not in Levey’s dots. I’ll upload the guitar tab to my website shortly, watch this space.
Does anyone know if there are any recordings of this tune?
This tune looks very like Humours of Glendart with the A and B parts reversed. Saddle the Pony is a different jig altogether which interestingly is often played in a set following the Humours of Glendart.
Humours of Glendart
I would agree Bannerman. This is just a version on Humours of Glendart and is not related to Saddle the Pony.
I assume that fact it is called Saddle The Pony in Levey’s means at least one person in the 1850’s when his book was put together knew the tune by that name? Either that or it is a misprint.

I prefer this tune to the Eponymous*: ‘Saddle the Pony’:
*Funnily enough Epona was the goddess of horses!
