SADDLE THE PONY [3] (Cuir diallaid air an clibin). AKA and see "Farrell's Pipes," "Fourpenny Girl (The),” “Grania's Welcome Home (2),” “Highway to Dublin (The),” “Langstern Pony (The),” “Langstrom's Pony,” “Priest's Leap (3) (The),” “Right Way to Dublin,” “Sweet Tibby Dunbar.” Irish, Double Jig. A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Paul de Grae notes that this setting is "very close--identical in places" to the first two parts of piper O'Farrell's six-part setting called "Farrell's Pipes," which O'Farrell printed in another of his collections (Pocket Companion for the Union Pipes, vol. 1, p. 32) as "Laustrum Pony." The setting in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) is in two parts, and it is likely that O'Neill took his version for his Music of Ireland (1903) from William Bradbury Ryan's earlier collection. Breathnach (1976) finds some similarity to “Paddy O’Rafferty.” The second strain of "Saddle the Pony [3]" is nearly the same as "Saddle the Pony (5)," also printed by O'Neill.
