Why should you ride sidesaddle when women can ride astride? There is a pretty simple answer: "Why not?.
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a woman riding sidesaddle, according to Mr. Roger Philpot, one of the most important teachers of physics, the first rule when a rider gets on a horse is "thinking smart". Although it seems a more uncomfortable or more unsafe riding sidesaddle, it is the opposite. It is much more likely that you'll fall riding astride than in this way and with a little practice you will get the feel and be as comfortable as if you were riding astride.
The sidesaddle consists of two or three horns which are placed between your two legs which usually fall to the left side.
Firstly, a horn which is placed above the right leg, second, a lower also called "jumping horn" that curves toward the left thigh, and if that would consist of third horn that is in the outside of the frame right side curving to the right thigh to provide extra support.
In the market there are several types of frames for sidesaddles: British, western, cowboy, old saddles, etc. We can find a new sidesaddle mount from 300 Euros. The setting of a sidesaddle frame is something more specific than a straddle mount, so when we find a suitable frame in mind the following points:
1. The seat is flat, and if possible for the rider before slipping.
2. To be able to access the buckles on the right side, so the rider can be cinched to the horse from above.
3. Have a rolling belt.
4. That rider is comfortable and easily focus on the saddle.
5. Properly fits the rider on the seat, for this we will consider the following measures:
1. From behind the knee to the back of the rear position "sitting", this corresponds to the length of the seat.
2. The width of the hips in a position to "sitting", this corresponds to the width of the seat.
3. The height and the circumference of the knee, this corresponds to the height and width of the upper horn.
4. That the saddle does not rock, not hurt the horse.
