Awesome! I was looking at this book last night on e-bay. I think I might buy it if I don't win, which I probably won't cause I think I won enough lately (pair of ariat boots anyone?)

Angelina said...

Sing me up! I have been wanting this book sooo bad since I saw it on ebay but I was afraid to buy it without seeing the inside. Is it as good as the cover looks?

Julie said...

I love you site. I have now been trying to find someone in my area that rides side saddle but alas no luck so far.

Laura Maynard said...

Oooh! Pick me, pick me! Thanks to you Julie I think I'm going to take the plunge and try side saddle, albeit Hunter style. I'm going to attend a clinic in March so this book would be awesome to read before then.

Susan said...

Another book on horse related stuff. I can never have too many. This looks like a great book.

Shars said...

Please count me in on the book drawing. I missed a Side Saddle Clinic last year. I'm hoping the barn will be doing the clinic this year. I like to learn new things with my horse....The book will be a wonderful way to a start.

Thank You Shari

I had a copy of this book and it was stolen from me. Simply disappeared off the shelf. I would so love to have another one. If I do not win it; I certainly will come back and order it. I have had no internet since Thursday and came to the library to check up on stuff. Have a problem with alot of the photos showing up but the single show photo did and I think it is quite nice. The tenseness shows but compare it this time next year and see how far you have come!!!

panavia999 said...

ooooh. That looks really interesting. Thanks

paula said...

I really would love this book! It's written by one of the most respected SS riders, and would be a wonderful addition to my riding library!! Hope I am the lucky number!

I would love to have a sidesaddle book.

Lorree said...

Just found your blog from COTH -- planning on riding sidesaddle for my wedding in April. Borrowed a sidesaddle (yes, it fits my horse), gotta find a long girth that fits, and then convince my horse this is a good idea. Probably the hardest part will be dismounting gracefully while wearing a wedding dress -- did I mention he's 17.1? The giveaway book would really come in handy right now!

Oh, my email is synrgystyk@aol.com.
