ISSO offers clinics, year-end awards (including youth and non-competitive activity awards), online forums,
Aside World quarterly magazine, to help you stay current with side saddle news, upcoming events, and informative articles. Members are eligible to participate in the Miles Aside trail mileage program, and information on show regulations.
Our members ride all disciplines from Grand Prix dressage to recreational trail rides. ISSO also operates
The Side Saddlery, a shop devoted to filling all your side saddle needs - even that elusive perfect saddle!
The Side Saddlery offers occasional special discounts and sales exclusively to members.
As a NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3) organization, ISSO’s mission is to educate about side saddle riding. Our
audience includes riders, breed organizations, youth groups, authors, historians, and people
from all walks of life. Your membership directly connects you with other aside riders, while helping ISSO
spread the joy of sidesaddle. Members have a say in the running of the organization through voting rights and participation in the Annual Gathering. (Memberships expire December 31. New members joining after October 1 are automatically extended through the end of the following year.)
Best of all, our members have found many new friends with a common interest. Your membership dollars,
like your donations, allow ISSO to continue providing quality educational materials about riding aside through
Aside World, expos, this website, and other venues. YOU help us fill the void!
