GALLEN FOR CBS-3 “EYEWITNESS NEWS”. ALL RIGHT, PAT GALLEN, THANKS VERY MUCH. WE WILL, WE ALSO SENT VITTORIA WOODILL OUT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT GOES ON HERE AT DEVON HORSE SHOW AND SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT SOMETHING CALLED SIDE SADDLE. IT IS A FORMAL WAY OF RIDING A HORSE. SHE TOLD ME THERE IS SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THEY PACK AWAY A LITTLE SOMETHING TO EAT FOR LATER. I WILL LET HER TELL YOU MORE. REPORTER: AT DEVON HATS AREN’T THE ONLY TRADITION THAT CELEBRATE THE L AGAIN IN WOMEN POMP, CIRCUMSTANCE OF THE SIDE SADDLE RIDER IS ALSO ONE THAT STAYED. THIS CLASSIC DEVON IS A TRADITIONAL CLASS, FROM VICTORIAN DAYS. THAT IS WHY IT IS SO ELEGANT AND BEAUTIFUL. REPORTER: WOMAN’S LEGS DRAPED OVER THE SIDE OF THE HORSE DATES BACK TO ANXIOUS TIME AS A WAY TO DRESS IN THE FINEST CLOTHING WHILE RIDING IN FASHION. A CLASS AT DEVON JUDGED FROM STITCH TOUSLED. SIDE SADDLE IS THE ONLY CLASS WHERE YOU ARE BEING JUDGED AGAINST A HISTORICAL STANDARD. IS WHAT YOU ARE WEARING APPROPRIATE FOR WHAT A LADY WOULD HAVE WORN. REPORTER: LAID WOULD HAVE WORN A TOP HAT, VEIL AND APRON IT IS MADE OF HEAVIER WOOL FOR THE REASON WHEN YOU ARE RIDING IT LOOKS NICE. IT DOESN’T FLOP AROUND. REPORTER: CONTEMPORARY RIDERS NEED NOT WORRY ABOUT THEIR SKIRTS OR SANDWICHES. I DON’T EVER HAVE TO BRING A SANDWICH WHEN I COMPETE. YOU DO, RIGHT. YES. THIS IS ONE OF THE APPOINTMENT FOR SIDE SADDLE YOU NEED A SANDWICH CASE. REPORTER: THAT IS RIGHT A SANDWICH CASE LIKE LADIES WOULD CARRY IF THEY NEEDED A BITE, BUT WHAT KIND OF SANDWICH IS BEST. IF YOU ARE OUT HUNTING IN THE FIELD AND HOT YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE A EGG SALAD SANDWICH WITH MAYONNAISE AND NEVER WANT TO HAVE A ROAST BEEF SANDWICH BECAUSE SCENT MIGHT THROW OFF THE HOUND WHILE FOX HUNTING.
