..on the Sidesaddle group in Facebook. The ladies were discussing the pictures just below showing the same rider on different horses where the sidesaddle is positioned in very different places.While the picture on the left does look really far back at first glance, I challenge you to look again.
As I said earlier, these are 2 different horses. Instead of looking at how much distance there is from the horses head to the rider, look now at the distance from the horses tail to the rider and you will see just low long the horse on the left is and that the rider is in acceptable riding positions in both pictures.
Now that you have read the above information... look at the antique photo once again.
