I just have to tell you how much i LOVE my Euro Light. I rode my horse for 9 hours straight ( we rode safety for the Trinity Trail Runner ) They use our local trails for there anual marathon run. My horses back was AWESOME …no soreness and he was a happy horse all around. I have had a Sharon Saare saddle that gave my horse white spots on his back. I had a Bob Marshall saddle that made him sore. I have had Abetta , Big Horn, Fabtron and Aussi saddles… NOTHING works like a Specialized Saddle.
