Sidesaddle

A saddle especially designed for woman so that they could ride a horse while keeping both legs on the same side of the horse. Such saddles were widely used in the early twentieth century. They were reported to not be nearly as comfortable as regular saddles, but it was not usually considered decorous for a woman to ride a regular saddle.
