Day 19 – A discipline you would like to do that you’ve never done before
I would love to have a go at side saddle, it looks so elegant. I’m far from elegant & will probably end up making a holy show of myself by falling off or something, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to try!
I’ve read Equestrian Reality’s A Ladies Guide to Preparing to Ride Side Saddle & A Ladies Guide to Preparing To Hunt Side Saddle in Ireland and have been practising on wobbly bar stools, so I think I’m as prepared as I’ll ever be, I even have a side saddle, I just don’t have a horse to fit it.
I have visions of looking elegant trotting around the show ring & going out hunting fearlessly jumping huge hedges & gates, not going to happen I’m sure, I’ll be doing well if I can manage to stay on at all, but a girl can dream lol
