Hi Tracy and David,
Hope all is well. This is late, but I just wanted to say thank you for all your help over the phone on fitting my saddle. Rick and Carol were at Bennett Hills and were nice enough to take the time to fit my saddle and show me how. They were so very nice and helful, that I thought you should know. That was the first time I had ever ridden in my new saddle. (It’s the International, fully tooled.) I rode the 75 miles and never felt a thing. Usually I am sore–but not with this saddle. It was UNBELIEVABLE!!! I was amazed that I could do that kind of ride on a new (to me and my horse) saddle and come out of it better than ever. What’s even better–my horse was totally sane that whole ride. I fully believe that he was more comfortable and as a result, not always trying to take off. A bonus: every one, and I mean EVERY ONE! commented on how gorgeous my saddle is! What a show stopper! It’s bad enough I ride a big black and white paint–now everyone is noticing my saddle, too. It’s pretty fun. Anyways, just wanted to drop in a “hello” and how much I appreciated your help along with Rick and Carol’s help. I’ve been promoting the heck out of your saddles.
