Sidesaddle Art..and My Progress!

I rode aside in a skirt (modified skirt - not an apron) for the very first time Sunday evening! First we clipped the skirt onto Oliver's saddle to see how he would react to all that fabric. He barely noticed it..so the skirt was taken off the saddle and put on me. I learned how to mount in a skirt and it was not as difficult as I thought it might be..although I will admit that our way of doing it would be TOTALLY unacceptable to a Victorian lady!

So in celebration of my new accomplishment...I give you these beautiful works of art!

Umm, I hope you are not using a skirt, but rather an apron. If you are using an apron, please refer to it that, as that is the correct term, before someone wants to jump in saying that sidesaddle is dangerous, someone can get caught on the pommels, etc., etc.
