Rider

An addition to a manuscript, like a codicil to a will; an additional clause tacked to a bill in parliament; so called because it over-rides the preceding matter when the two come into collision.

“Perhaps Mr. Kenneth will allow ine to add the following as a rider to his suggestion.” —Notes and Queries, “M.N.”
