Side Saddle Showing Side saddle is ever increasing in popularity with many shows now holding side saddle classes.

The Side Saddle Association (http://www.sidesaddleassociation.co.uk/) was set up in 1974, when Janet Macdonald and Valerie Francis wrote a letter to “Horse & Hound” hoping to gather a band of like-minded enthusiasts to keep alive a dying art.

From this, the “Side Saddle Association” was born and over the years has become respected throughout the UK and abroad, evolving into the Association we know today, with over 1200 members, including Junior and Overseas members.

The three day National Side Saddle Show is held in August, with classes open to all side saddle riders from the UK and Overseas. The Show also hosts The Side Saddle Association’s Equitation Championships.

Alongside the SSA, Sports Horse GB hold Ladies Side Saddle classes which culminate in finals at both HOYS and the Royal International.
