29 October

Next February we are going to have a side-saddle weekend. It’s one of our regular ponycamps with lessons. for the booklet I have been asked to make a drawing. But I have to do my diary painting too. It’s getting too busy!

So why not combine the two.
So here’s my painting for the day!
This was a famous circus rider in the nineteenth century.

29 October sidesaddle riding


  1. Sooo beautiful! Who is this lady,do you know? Is she actually ‘posing’ as the horse leaps into the sky? 🙂 Or is this only your version?

  2. Lat I made this painting from a sketch I made from a book. I don’t own the book, so all I can remember is that this lady was a renowned circusrider. And the horse is making a ”capriole” the most spectacular classical high school jump.

    Achelois 🙂 if only I could ride my horse in sidesaddle like that!

    Solomon, Nice… I’m a big fan of Mary Poppins! And I bet she could do it!
