How ladylike! Kim Kardashian rides side-saddle as she horses around on a carousel

By Mike Larkin

The Victorians used to say that a real lady always rides her horse in the side-saddle style.

And Kim Kardashian adopted the antiquated riding technique during a day out in New York.

Unfortunately for the reality television personality she fell at the final hurdle as she galloped towards equestrian respectability, as she failed to try it out on a real horse.

Looks like a lady: Kim Kardashian showed off her sidesaddle skills as she enjoyed a family day out in New York today

Perhaps the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star thought it was better to approach the new skill one step at the time by trying it out on a carousel.

Kim showed off her skills as she enjoyed the rides at the side of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York with her glamorous sister Kourtney.

It turned out to be a play date for three, as the eldest Kardashian sister had brought along her adorable son 20-month-old son Mason, who loved the excitement of the merry-go-round.

Bit of photography on the side: Kim took a picture of her son Kourtney and her adorable son Mason as they enjoyed the carousel

Say cheese: Mason looked like he was already equipped to follow in his mother and aunt's footsteps as he smiled for the camera

Experienced rider: Kim showed she had more in her bag of equestrian tricks than a penchant for sidesaddle as she rode like a cowboy

Later the experienced rider showed her versatility on the toy horse, as she sat in the standard American Western posture.

The colourful 30-year-old star again wore a houndstooth pattern, this time on her jacket, as she enjoyed some quality time with her family.

In contrast her sister Kourtney, 32, wore a less flamboyant combo of leggings and blouse.

Raising the woof: Even the dog wanted to shake hands with the Kardashians as they enjoyed their fun day out

However little Mason was not left out in the style stakes as he wore a smart shirt and cute bow tie for his outing.

Before heading to the amusements, they sisters took the boy for a fun walk as they visited the Brooklyn Bridge.

And they even took the opportunity to get him used to animals, as they chatted with a friendly dog-walker and let him pet the pooch.

Little and Large: The pair were more visually appealing than the English comic duo as they stepped out in Manhattan

Bootiful: Kim showed she is still not afraid to push her fashion boundaries in this revealing outfit

Kim clearly enjoys being an auntie to little Mason, tweeting earlier today: 'Felt good 2 sleep in a little. Now having a dance party w Mason! His fav song he knows all the words to is @rihanna! Oh nana what's my name!'

Later on in the day, she changed into a more revealing look as she went out on the town with her basketball journeyman husband Kris Humphries, who plays for NBA also-rans the New Jersey Nets.

The self-styled businesswoman looked far less ladylike than when she was on the saddle, in a fashion forward outfit of thigh high boots, revealing black and white dress, and a wide brimmed hat.

Shocked: Even Kris' jaw dropped when he saw his wife's daring new outfit when he looked outside his car

Height difference: Basketball player Kris towered above new wife Kim, despite her very high heeled boots

Kris' jaw dropped when he first set eyes on the reality television personality, and he no doubt felt he was letting the couple down on the fashion front with a casual jeans and T-shirt look.

She and Kris's height difference was discernible as they stepped out together in Manhattan.

The reality show star is in the city to film the second series of spin off show Kourtney & Kim Take Manhattan.

Hats off! The reality show star looked striking in her big black floppy hat and matching accessories

Meet and greet: The reality star, whose wedding will air in s special on U.S. network E!, waved to her fans as she stepped out in the city
