More Antique Sidesaddle Photos..

I collect these and they all make me wonder what their stories are.. some very rich .. some not. Some ride for sport - some for fashion and still others as a means of proper (short haul) transportation.. Enjoy!

These next 2 were sent to me by Betty Ownsbey. Thanks Betty!

I have historical information on some of these photos. Next week I will post a few of their stories!

Lilian Harvey photo: I have some of her movies on videotape. They are german language musicals. She had quite a successful career in germany, was multilingual then came to the USA in the 30's when the gestapo harassed her. The German govt confiscated her wealth and rescinded her citizenship. (She was born in England.)
Although I enjoy her films I hate the way she has that poor horses head cranked.

Lovely photos! I stumbled on your blog today and I am so glad I did! My parents are antique dealers and I grew up with a love for old photos--I have seen many like this. I also grew up with horses although I don't have any now. You blog is wonderful for me--combining history and a love for horses. BEAUTIFUL!
