I dont even own a skirt...let alone ever having ridden in one. lol.

Pics look great acey.

also a little off topic........... i remember reading an article about a girl whos mum didnt want her to ride because she thought it wasnt lady like. So the girl took up side saddle.....lol..the mum coudnt complain after that. hehehe. I have heard its quite hard but would be very interesting to try.

I agree with Jenna, I would love to try side-saddle. It does look really elegant.

I think the only way I would try riding with a skirt on is if I was wearing shorts underneath. Although, I can't imagine it being comfortable. Riding with shorts alone is a nightmare for my legs.

Side saddle would be awesome to try. I agree with wearing shorts or leggings under a skirt if you do ride in it...might not be too pleasent otherwise! ;)

My neighbors only wear skirts and they ride in them all the time. I wouldn't want to though!

I have a best friend whose religion requires her to wear a skirt...she rides in long, blue jean skirts. Knowing/riding with her has actually been a good experience for my horses. She's an amazing rider, and her skirts are often baggy/billowy.

i have ridden in a skirt a few times, and i would Not recommend it. If you go at any speed it comes way up which isn't very pretty! And if you are unfortunate to fall off or get bucked off, it isn't fun either. :( So if I were you stick with jeans! lol :) (unless you plan on just walking :)

We are planning a western wedding and thought about riding in on horseback ,but decided not to. We arent going to use the horses in the ceremony but we are going to get pics done with them. I have seen western brides with dresses/skirts riding in pictures and always wondered how they managed that. They sure look pretty on horseback though!
