side saddle

Has anyone ever tried it?

Is it as hard as it seems?

I tried it just in my normal saddle mucking around, and yes it was very hard :]

However I think when done properly, its not so hard.

Haha, I have done the same, in a regular saddle. But a real side saddle has two stirrups, so I think it would be easier, like wild_spot said. I would LOVE to try it one day though. It looks so pretty. When I get married, I want a picture of me sidesaddle, with my long flowing dress, on my horse. hehe ...

Side saddle looks really fun, but probably very very hard. I have never tried it in my regular close contact saddle, but tomorrow i'll give it a I was reading a article in horse illustrated and this lady was jumping side saddle. It was very cool!

A lady at the barn has a side saddle and uses it on regular trail rides. I've even seen her canter in it. I asked her how she keeps from falling and she says it's actually simple. I think it'd be fun, but with my girl I need control on both sides.

Its really hard in a normal saddle or bareback though

I assume a horse in side saddle is working solely through reigning aids?

A lady I know rides and does demonstrations side saddle. She said it is much more comfortable and is very simple. You horse has to be trained for it, and accept a whip on the side that your leg is not. The whip is used for cueing, since your leg is not there to do so. She said she feels much more secure in a side saddle than a normal hunt saddle.
