A BIT ON THE SIDE. SIDE SADDLE DISPLAY TEAM

The ladies of this popular display team are very honoured to be at The Game Fair for the first time. A Bit on the Side will guide you through the art of side saddle riding. The elegance, the mystery and the history will be revealed.

Jumping will be shown, something seldom seen off the hunting field, when the top riders in the country will demonstrate this ancient art showing their amazing ability and courage. Fun and laughter is the key to learning! With commentator and Team Manager Ginny Oakley Pope we hope you enjoy this unique and entertaining display.

The four riders will be:

Emma Brown, the Side Saddle hunting queen of the Quorn and one of the most photographed Side Saddle riders in the world. Emma rides her own Flying Chicken a new horse to the team last year and her latest Side Saddle hunter.

Lauren Allin is the National Side Saddle Rider of the Year 2017. She is also an up and coming top event rider featured in H and H last year. Lauren rides Ashton’s Flight a top eventer turned Side Saddle horse who Ben Hobday learnt the art of Side Saddle on at Blenheim 2016.

Chloe Gunn is the reserve National Rider of the Year 2017. Chloe has excelled all different types of equestrianism including Side Saddle. Chloe rides her multi talented Oaklands Gypsy who in the past has shown to HOYS level.

Mollie Somerfield, aged 16 years, rides her own horse, Langfords Lady. Mollie was reserve Champion Junior Rider last year. An amazing accolade as she has not been riding side saddle for very long.
