    Does anybody know where I can go to ride side saddle.
    It's on my bucket list, as I can ride astride but always wanted to give s/s a try.
    I'm in Wiltshire, UK.
    Thanks.

    My mum's horse is at these stables and they've had someone in a couple of times doing side saddle lessons, my mum had a go with her horse. They're in Gloucestershire.

    I love the look of side saddle - so elegant! One of those things I would love to try one day, but not on my own horse!

    Not got round to it yet. Maybe just brush up on astride for now cos I’ve just realised it’s 15 years since I’ve actually been on a horse. Also remembering why I gave up riding for driving... I need to see if I still bounce when I hit the ground!
