My name is Danielle and I have been riding sidesaddle since September of 2008 when I found out that they were still being used. I thought they were just in museum. I do not have my own horse yet. But I have a few friends that let me barrow their horses. :D I do own two sidesaddle though. One is an old catalog saddle and one is for toy horses that I have had since I was about 10 years old. Whats funny is I never realized what it was till I unpack it some time last year. I enclosed a picture of me riding in a fun show, my first ever horse show. I had a blast!! And got sun burned real bad. The pic is my costume for the costume class. I also enclosed a picture of my 2 sidesaddles. Your blog is a vary good idea. Thanks for sharing.
