Lorne has just completed a new bronze of a lovely side saddle mare "Milly"  In order to become familiar with the subject she practised riding side saddle on her polo pony Bonito who seemed very happy with the idea. Apparently in American when judging sidesaddle competitions they even taste the quality of the sandwiches in the sandwich bag!
