I am a new member, thought i might say hello to every one and ask if anyone rides sidesaddle. I read that a lot of you seem to be into the english riding style, well as an english rider wanted to try something new and wow!! sidesaddle is for me.Would love to hear if anyone else has had a go and how you got on.
That's how I usually mount, though the guy whose horse I usually ride thus, sometimes gives me a lift. He's a rarity, he rides side too, (started when he watched his sister learning as a kid, and her tutor saw no reason why he shouldn't learn too) In some rural pony clubs, boys learn too, but they usually get put off by peer pressure as they get older.
