Otherwise titled, "way #3697 I'm going to try and break my neck"
As an early birthday gift, my Darling Husband has given me an honest-to-goodness side saddle (squee!). I've always wanted to learn how to ride aside but never got around to it. So now, Freedom (my Tennessee Walker) and I are going to foray into the antiquated riding style. This'll be interesting, considering there are - to my knowledge and furious googling - no local instructors, clinics or groups. Luckily, I have the interwebs and an excellent guide in Mrs. Alice M. Hayes.
This weekend I'll be trying the saddle on Freedom - checking for fit and function. With luck, it'll be a close enough fit for him, and for me, to give it a go.
