The Side Saddle Association Area 16 (Devon & Cornwall)
Hello and welcome to SSA Area 16 website. We are a group of side saddle enthusiasts located in Devon and Cornwall who encourage and support the development of side saddle riding in our area. We are a part of The Side Saddle Association.
So if you've always wanted to try side saddle but not been sure where to start why not get in touch. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have and help you get started. Most horses and ponies of all shapes and sizes take very well to side saddle, junior riders most welcome so why not contact us and give it a go.
We run various shows and training events throughout the year and there is something for everyone at all levels. We are fortunate to also have several shows across the region that hold affiliated side saddle classes, so there is plenty choice for the competitive rider.
Why not visit the various pages of our website for more information on what is on, some photos of our members in action and you can also find us on Facebook at Area 16 Side Saddle Association.
