The idea of it being indecent for a lady to ride astride can be traced back to 1382, when Princess Anne of Bohemia rode side-saddle across Europe on her way to marry King Richard II. Riding side-saddle was seen as a way to protect her virginity.

Interesting, but I bet the boys have been questioning this even longer through time.

LOL!!!!!!! You can always tell which cowboys are gifted by whether or not they reach down and tuck or not, after they get in the saddle. The gifted ones HAVE to or OUCH! LOL! 5 L!
