I found these on the ISSO website, so all credit to them. I just thought I might borrow them. They've got a super interesting "book" on their website by Alice Hayes called "The Horsewomen". It's got a ton of really good information, descriptions and some great pictures. You can definitely tell that it was written in 1903 by some of the descriptions and "expectations" of ladies back in the day. A really interesting read if you have the time or are trying to figure something out.
These two photos show the sequence of posting the trot sidesaddle. An art that I haven't quite mastered yet! I can do it for a short period of time and then my leg muscles get tired.
This lady makes it look much more graceful than I feel doing it! I was actually suprised at how high it appears she's coming out of the saddle in the second picture. (back to the gym for me to work on my leg muscles!)
And this little girl is too cute!
