Hello fellow side saddle enthusiasts, and welcome! My name is Ciara and I live in Co. Laois in the midlands of Ireland with my hubby and little baby Charlotte. I have been riding side saddle since my friend Caroline gave me a lesson in 2007, and have been shamelessly addicted ever since. I spent my first couple of months wages on a side saddle and habit when I started working as a teacher in 2007 and have never looked back 🙂 This is a blog about my side saddle adventures in Ireland with my horse Texas Diamond over the last number of years.
I am an active member of the Side Saddle Association of Ireland and have organised various side saddle events such as Have a Go Days, training clinics, pony camp weekends and hacks at stately houses as well as hunting and competing at some local shows.
