Side Saddle Scenes in Cinema

If you are anything like me then you probably love a good movie and what makes it even better is to see horses or better yet, a side saddle scene! This issue I thought it may be fun to try to remember all the movies or TV series that I had seen involving side saddle riders, habits, or themes. Well, I will admit I did not get very far down the list before I had to "phone a friend" - literally. It was a good idea in theory but proved to be more difficult then one would imagine. Hence, this then became a compellation from several resources (thanks Marybeth Walker, Hosier Ladies Aside website, and of course Google!) I wonder how many you will get?

In our book if you get 10 you are okay,  25 you are average, 50 you are pretty good, and over 75 you are an expert! 

Please let us know of any additional scenes we are missing from movies or TV series so we can add them to the List!
