Side saddle talk

Horse enthusiasts from the Algarve came together earlier this month at the Pinetrees Riding Centre in Almancil to learn about the art of riding side saddle.

A talk was given by side saddle expert Mike Huline-Dickens, a master saddler and teacher to trainee saddlers. The event was also a chance for horse enthusiasts of the Algarve to network.

Two side saddle equestriennes, Petra Viol from Vale de Ferro in Mexilhoeira Grande and Katherine Cook from Quinta da Bica in Messines, brought along their own saddles and riding habits.

Riding for the Disabled in the Algarve benefited from the evening.
