I have just arrived home from the “Endure for the Cure” ride in South Carolina. It was my horses first official ride and when she finished 16th place in a 35 mile ride, with all A’s on her card I was thrilled. No soreness at all in her back at all, which I thought I would never see. This is a horse who went though 3 other brand name saddles and professional fitters. Now with this saddle no soreness at all and white marks going away. I am very pleased with my saddle and recommend it highly to anyone who asks!
