Articled to firm of solicitors, Doncaster; there became intimate friend of the sporting writer James White [also a H.W. contributor], through whom he made the acquaintance of sporting worthies and was influenced to become writer on the turf.

     Dixon's H.W. ["Horse-Taming", XVIII, 82-85. July 10, 1858] article devotes a paragraph to the celebrated jockey and horse-breaker Dick Christian, whom Dixon quotes at length in some of his books. Dixon was a reader of H.W.: two chapters in Saddle and Sirloin he prefaced with a quotation from the periodical.
