A dear friend is getting married in fall of 2007 and would very much like to ride in sidesaddle. The problem is cost--about $2,000 for an English sidesaddle.
Does anyone know of a place that rents them or that sells them for significantly less?

Ellie, see if The Tack Exchange in Waterbury, VT, has a web page. They are on Route 100 in Waterbury, if I remember correctly. Bev McMullin is the proprietor, and I have seen some side-saddles in her shop over the years . . . not always in the best condition, but you never know what she may have now.

Ellie - have no idea where you might rent a side saddle (although I think I may know someone who may have one) but when I saw "Maine" in your posting, I checked your profile. I am also a teacher in Maine with horses! You might try posting on MaineRiders.com or MaineHorse.com. Great resources for networking and local information.Good Luck!

Many thanks to you both. I should have realized you'd have an idea, Holly! And Val, thanks for the websites. I will definitely try them. Wouldn't my friend be delighted if we could dig up a sidesaddle for her!
