    Be sure to use the link in the last post above.

    In your sentence, I see these elements:

    Clause 1 = Late in the evening Robert came late to dinner, riding on John's horse,

    and

    Clause 2 - we gave him ham and some boiled beans.

    The phrase "riding on John's horse" is a participial phrase.
    * riding = participle modifying "came"
    * on John's horse = prepositional phrase modifying "riding"

    I APPRECIATE THAT
