    Default Side saddle in MD?

    Does anyone know if there are side saddle clinics in MD that show you how to fit a side saddle for you and your horse and to perhaps give you a lesson? Or maybe a lesson facility? I've always been curious about side saddle! It looks like so much fun to ride and jump like that. I don't think it's a good idea to just buy a cheapie side saddle and give it a go on my own either though. I am done with school next month so am trying to find a summer activity for me and my horse.

    And yes the Anjelina Jolie video resparked the interest.

    Davera Ackenbom is in Virginia (I know not MD, but close enough!) and she has a lifetime of sidesaddle experience, and she currently trains, teaches lessons and hosts sidesaddle only shows.

    Here is her website: http://www.foxwhisperfarm.com/lessons/

    I can do it if you want to come to NoVA, otherwise Lou Steinfort is in MD (she rides out of Rolling Acres). Sue Sisco (Sunfield, Inc.) is in Christina, PA, which may be closer to you depending on where you are.

    I'm in Frederick.

    Thank you! I will have to look at my finals schedule before I can make any better plans.

    Or Jaye Younkers in Potomac. She's awesome - She's evented, done the jumpers, and I think team penned aside
