..Here is the finished product! Emily, Madison and I all dolled up .. 1800's style!
These 2 homes were built in the 1860's in Columbus, MS.
This garden was put in (including massive amounts of brick) by a woman who was a master gardener... and she had 7 (YES - I TYPED THAT RIGHT!!)..she had 7 children!
There were all kinds of garden structurs that left me breathless!
One of the historical homes actually had a church behind the house in the gardens!
Madison and I playing Hop Scotch!
We already made plans to do this again next year.
I know that this was not specifically about riding sidesaddle.. but since it was in the historic time frame.. and I used one of my sidesaddle habits, I thought you would enjoying seeing it!

Here is a great You Tube Video explaining how to properly sit in a hoop skirt!
