I have tried many sidesaddle riding suits. I have everything from the historic costume,
to the longer saddleseat jacket paired with an apron (my least favorite)
..and here is the outfit that almost ate the horse.. because the skirt was just too poofy...
This was the first picture I saw of the suit that took my breath away!
I had Cindy from Wild Horse Fashion recreate it for me in a light weight wool, lined in grey cotton.. it was not too hot, not too bulky, not to big and flouncy... It was taylored and elegant... just like Oliver .. and Jose.. and Chippers... and Sport!
Well, I love this suit so much, I had Cindy make me another one that will match Sport's beautiful bay color. Please note, the following pictures make the wool fabric look much lighter in color than it actually is...and there is the most modest striping that runs through the fabric.
