    Well, I was out with Martha on Saturday for that Irish side-saddle hunt, so I can confirm that she is great, the ditches were huge, and we all deserved a cig and drink at the end of it!

    LOL, I never smoked, but I can see the deep satisfaction that cig is giving her after a heartbounding run!
    (ohe heck, the way she is riding, it won't be the smokes doing her in! I am sure the devil can wait!)

    Sidesaddle Rider - Wow! Good for you! It must have been an absolutely amazing experience. I got to hunt with the Blazers in November '11, and would go back in a heart beat...

    Very cool!
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    It was SO MUCH FUN!!! We are now planning to go hedge-hopping in England for a week in the fall, doing the Quorn for their Opening Meet and then some of the other Leicestershire hunts. Doesn't this look like fun? --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=UsRGonFLBuQ

    i'd have to go find it, but there was one pic in that series that mike posted of a woman coming off a ditch with her eyes squeezed shut--that would be me (if i lost my mind and tried to do this). actually, i'd just throw myself on the ground a few times and not bother getting on a horse at all.

    i *would* like to ride sidesaddle sometime though; looks like fun.

    When I grow up I want to be just like her.

    Seriously. She is FULL of awesome.

    Balls to the m-f'in wall! Y'all some crazy broads, i love it! :-D I think I have a new mental image for motivation while riding, or needing a boost in general bad-assery.

    Awesome pic! I wish I could be that woman! I know I'm not, but I can keep her in mind when I need to be more fierce

    That brave (Crazy?) attitude seems to prevail in hunting. I was drawn into the sport when I read here, in the hunting forum, a post by a woman mourning the loss of a favorite shirt that had to be cut off....no mention whatsoever of the injury!...just mourning the shirt

    If I could ride with someone that ballsy I think I might actually be persuaded to buy a foxhunter and re-learn how to post.

    Devon, isn't there a whole album of these muddy Meath shots you could link here? I'm on my phone and thus internet challenged.
