GREY LAKE STABLES HOSTS SUSAN OAKES SIDE SADDLE CLINIC AT WINDURRA USA!

Now here’s a new spin on an old tradition, and it’s catching fire here in the states!  Riding Aside instead of Astride is making a resurgence, since our friends at the Cheshire Point To Point races hosted The Mrs. Miles B. Valentine Side Saddle race on March 27th! That race was the first of it’s kind held north of the Mason Dixon line since 1943 and the entry and spectator response was enormous.

Susan Oakes, traveled from Ireland to catch ride Fort Henry (owned and trained by Stephanie Boyer) in the Cheshire Races.  Ms. Oakes is a world renowned side saddle competitor who has set the World Record jumping a 6’9″ Puissance wall, and she happens to be good friends with (the recently retired) Huntsman Ivan Dowling & his beautiful bride to be, Stephanie Boyer.  Steph is also a former upper level event rider who most recently whipped for Cheshire Foxhounds alongside Ivan.
