    Now Gidget the question arises as to whether you are going to try perching yourself up on a horse tacked out with a saddle fitted with two hooks.

    Maybe SMR can tell you how to do it.

    PS This is one occasion where definitely I am very glad I am a fella.

    LOL, don't look at me!! I am purely a western girl and probably, if I had been born in the days of sidesaddles and dresses, I would have been looked down upon for wearing pants and riding astride.

    I frequently ride in a long flowy skirt. I actually prefer it. And if you take the time to position your skirt, it can look really striking and dramatic, unlike me in this picture. I sort of just jumped on and left it as it lay.

    I was in a sidesaddle in the pics I posted the link to. I just had a cover on the saddle to cover up some blemishes. It really is not hard at all, I was on my old barrel horse and was very comfortable in the saddle. The trick to the balance is through your seat, if you ride focusing on core balance already, then it doesn't really matter where your legs go. It also helps to have a horse that is very sensitive to voice commands, although as I understand it, its customary to use a whip in place of the second leg.

    Oh wow...I just thought you were bareback with a blanket underneath.
    Such beautiful pictures and I like how the legs are adjusted when sitting in a side saddle. Very lady like and elegant.

    For a couple of Halloweens, I've dressed in a long skirt as part of my costume and gone riding.

    One time, I went as a pirate (put a fake parrot in my horse's mane, and used non-toxic white hair spray-paint to stencil a Jolly Roger on my horse's shoulders and flanks). The skirt I wore was long, but I still wore flesh-tone britches and my tall field boots underneath and was perfectly comfortable. No legs "sticking" to the saddle, or uncomfortable rubbing going on.

    The following year, I was Red Riding Hood and my horse was "The Big Bad." I wore a long khaki-type skirt, again with the boots and breeches underneath. The skirt was longer than the pirate one, but I was able to arrange it to "flow" over the cantle of my saddle and onto my horse's hindquarters. Of course, I also wore the red riding hood -- well, it was more of a long red cape -- and also draped that over my horse's hindquarters. It looked really cool since he's solid black, and didn't bother him a bit. We went out on trail ride like that, too! I still run into people I met that day, and they still call me "Red Riding Hood."

    Actually, when women started hunting aside, it was very dangerous as skirts would get tangled causing dragging. Aprons became the proper attire in sidesaddles. Matching breeches were worn underneath.

    I love riding aside





    These pics were doctored to try to make them look even older than they are.
