Here is my story.
Ok, so my wife is Sharon Roper, a very successful Specialized Saddles dealer, but I have to tell my story. Trust me if you knew me you would know I wouldn’t be so enthusiastic if it weren’t all true.
Since Sharon became a Specialized dealer I have heard all these great stories from new owners. I watched Sharon on the NATRC rides go from losing points from a sore back, no matter what she did with pads and saddles, to perfect performance and this year riding open class, which is 30 miles, 10 miles longer than previous years.
Well I have my own story. The western saddle I have been using fit fairly well, didn’t have too many sore back problem but it would not stay put. The saddle would slide forward past the withers even with just cantering, imagine with steep hills, regardless of various pads I tried. I now have my very own Eurolight. and man, what a difference. This saddle doesn’t even have to be cinched tight to stay put. At the NATRC ride in NM we were ahead in time so we stopped for 30 minutes and I loosened the cinch 3 holes on the billets. We remounted and then did a 1/2 mile trot to the P&R. After the P&R we walked over to the water and then I noticed that I had forgotten to tighten the cinch. A mount, dismount and trot and that saddle didn’t move one whit with the cinch dangling! That is a miracle to Jabez and I. He has become so quiet, amazing for a left brained extrovert, like his owner. An extra bonus with this saddle is I change the pads and I can get the same fit on Nakala. It is a wonderful product!!
