The International Side Saddle Celebration Weekend was the biggest promotional event ever run by the Association.
The weekend was a fitting tribute to end the Association’s Fortieth Anniversary Celebrations. The event
promoted the elegant art of side saddle riding with some superb displays that championed the versatility of
side saddle riding in this country. With over 400 participants, representatives,
Members, families and friends attending from across the United Kingdom, the weekend involved every corner
of the country as well as our overseas Members and friends who travelled far and wide from around the world.
