Clinics 2022

Dear members,

Faith Ponsonby is kindly running side saddle clinics on 16th January, 20th February and 13th March, in Mullinahone Co. Tipperary, weather permitting. All riders and helpers must take an Antigen test the morning of the clinic and must be over 18 years old. The minute lesson is over, rider and helper must leave. Only one helper per rider. Any change in the Covid Situation means we will have to consider postponing. Side Saddles will be available on the day for those members who do not have their own saddles yet. It is possible that some saddles will also be available for sale on the day, for those looking to buy their own. Applications for the clinics will open on 8th January 2022 on itsplainsailing. All riders taking part in these lessons must be members of Side Saddle Ireland. Membership must also be paid through itsplainsailing.

Please book in at
