Alright...i might wear some leggings under it..no one will see. I thought it would be nice to have a nice long skirt and little tank top or something during the summer...

Thanks Deerly, when I met my husband, he knew he was getting a package deal!

Also, the other girls that I knew that rode in a parade had skirts that were long enough that they could fold them under from the front, so they didn't have any chafing problems.

Personally, I wouldn't do it in a western saddle. English, maybe.. less to get caught on.

If I was to wear a skirt while riding, bareback or with a saddle, I'd wear spandex shorts underneath to prevent um.. uncomfortable rubbing of certain areas.

That's what I was thinking. I'm not for spandex at all but I think it would be a GOOD idea when wearing a skirt. Mine is a long skirt and I would also like pictures so I think I will do that.

Well Gidjet skirts are a bit out of fashion but ladies in the first quarter of the twentieth century always wore skirts and rode side saddle.

It was felt unladylike for a lady to wear 'trousers' and modern riding breeches
Would have been viewed as being positively indecent.

Riding side saddle is a skill calling for a special saddle but a friend of mine says that she felt quite safe when she used to ride to hounds wearing a long black skirt, fancy leather boots, a ladies top hat, a white blouse, a silk cravat and a button through black jacket.

Imagine riding a horse with one's right leg wrapped around the horn and the left reaching down to a short stirrup iron.

Very lady like...
But sounds so uncomfortable!
I've seen movies and a video on youtube with a lady riding side saddle.
I didn't know they had special saddles for that.

It was felt back in those days that ladies might get too 'excited' sitting astride a saddle - where as the side saddle gave them a firm position on the saddle without the need to sit astride.
I am sure you can find a photo of an example somewhere on the internet

How times have changed.

Here is an example of one.


I agree with you, it looks very elegant, but very uncomfortable.
