To Die For... Riding Costumes!

To wrap up this weeks "To Die For" venue.. I conclude with some of the most elaborate and elegant outfits I have ever seen for sidesaddle riding! Creative ideas, reflections of the past and incredible attention to DETAILS!

Just take a moment and enjoy! This one is my favorite!!! Oh - It would be worth not eating for a year to look this smart riding aside!!




















The historical backdrop matches this stunning riding outfit




















Just lovely.



















Something so special about red against the backdrop of snow!



















Wonderful Burgundy!




















Hey Look - she is kind of cute too...
snicker snicker..

My favourite is still the lady in the grey habit on the bay. I'd like to see a side view of the lady in the brown habit in the chubby grey horse. Simple elegance, very impressive.

Hi Julie!

I felt so guilty after "speaking" to you on the French side saddle forum that I thought I would come here at the first opportunity and post a wee comment...

Thank you for all the time you spend looking for side saddle related items, and thank you for sharing your findings with everyone. It's always a pleasure to read your blog!

Lovely! I wish you attributed your pictures, so I could see what else is at these sites! (Not to mention giving credit where it's due to these women who put so much into it!)
