Horsehaven Stables is pleased to introduce the art of riding aside as another one of its many unusual facets. “I am very happy to have finally achieved this goal of mine. It all came together so nicely this year.” said Solange. She added that while the challenge to her and her horses was demanding, it was all worth it. …

… In the horse world, sidesaddle is considered the epitome of elegance and beauty. Thus far, Solange has ridden aside in the Chagrin Valley Hunt’s Hound Parade at the Gold Cup, CVH’s Hunter Trials and of course in the field. She has even begun to pass her knowledge on to her one of her brightest Juniors, Red.

the rider can squeeze her right (top) leg downwards and against the upper pommel, and her left (bottom) leg upwards into the leaping head to create an extremely strong grip. It is tiring for both the rider and the horse to maintain this emergency hold, however, and most riders rely upon good position, balance, and coordination to maintain their seat.

Fitting a sidesaddle to a rider: Yellow line is how to measure length, orange line shows that width is measured across the widest part of the seat, and the lavender line shows measurement of the “neck” or “twist” - the narrowest part of the seat

Alice Hayes atop her zebra

… After Long Rider Daisy Bates migrated from Ireland to Australia in the 1880s, she rode three thousand miles in her sidesaddle across the Outback. Likewise, when Ella Sykes, the unconquerable English Long Rider, set out to canter across the deserts of Persia, it wasn’t the local Muslims who almost slew her, it was the sidesaddle which nearly took her life on several occasions.

It was during this time period that Alice Hayes, a British author and strong advocate of the sidesaddle, warned the English speaking world that the only people advocating ladies to resume riding astride were “journalists short of copy and women anxious for notoriety.” Hayes went on to denounce “feminine desperados” who, being either “mad or wholly ignorant,” had forgotten how “ungraceful” riding astride made a woman look.

Yet while Hayes and Hitchcock worked hard at protecting the equestrian status quo, lady Long Riders were quietly breaking down social and equestrian restrictions on both sides of the Atlantic. …
