I want to thank you again for your support. I adore my saddle and it has done so much to improve my mare’s back. After a competition, Jazz would always get B’s on her back and be very sore for the next couple days, no matter the terrain. With the Specialized, we got it to fit pretty much perfectly, and she came out of her ride in great shape. We went to the OCTRA Spring Ride and entered the FEI** 75mile. This ride was filled with rolling hills and a couple of very good climbs. I was expecting her to be at least a little back sore at the end because we have no hills to condition on but her back was fantastic and not sore or tight in any way! I was amazed at how good her back was, but also at how she moves out in it! She is much more comfortable and so am I.
We completed the ride in 4th place in a time of 9:29. With this ride, Jazz and I are officially qualified to compete at the World Junior Young Rider Championships in Abu Dhabi this December. We are still planning on attending the North American Young Rider Championships in Kentucky this July.
