Join us for the

2020 ISSO Annual Gathering and Unmounted Clinic

March 6-8, 2020 

Save the date for the Annual ISSO Meeting and Unmounted Clinic!  

For those that can come early, we planned a packed day to get together and allow new friends and old to foster the "side saddle sisterhood" on Friday March 6th, 2020. This will be a fun "girls day" visiting multiple local tack shops and two eat-togethers, (you pay for your meals) so members can learn more about each other and get to spend quality time hanging out as a group.  (And let's face it who doesn't love to tack shop?) There will be a little something for everyone.


On March 7th, we will enjoy a full day of programming that will interest those new-to and seasoned in side saddle on March 7th (agenda to follow but topics include solving saddle issues, habit safety concerns as well as care of vintage items, dressage in your side saddle, etc.). In the evening, we will round out the night by dressing to the hilts and attending the 2019 awards banquet and silent auction (additional charge). This is the opportunity you have been waiting for to pull out your habits, reproduction gowns, vintage outfits, or just something that makes you feel fabulous!


The Annual ISSO Business Meeting will start the day on Sunday, March 8th.  Then, we will enjoy interactive sessions with members contributing THEIR visions of the future of ISSO with a wrap up at noon--just in time to get you on the road home.  We hope to see you there!
