Side Saddle “have a go” - 3 March 2019

Download a leaflet here

The art of riding Side saddle is gaining in popularity, more and more riders are “giving it a go” and finding it surprisingly enjoyable.

All my cobs take a side saddle and my staff learn to ride side saddle too!

Whether you’ve ridden side saddle before or never even tried, come along and “have a go”, small groups in the Indoor school.

My side  saddles are available for use, subject to fit. The only thing you need is a nice correct fitting hat and boots!!  

Remember this is open to all - so give it a try!

During your session you will:

  • Have an individual assessment of each horse and rider.
  • Learn how to correctly fit a side saddle.
  • Learn how to mount and dismount safely.
  • Practise correctly sitting in a side saddle.
  • Ride in walk and trot.
  • For the more experienced - ride in canter - optional.
  • Learn about the HOYS competition and other shows  holding side saddle classes.
  • Learn about the correct dress (habits) for side saddle classes.
  • Understand the format of the side saddle class.
