From Rhiona ( connemara x ) and Diana ( owner happy )
Over 10 years ago my owner decided it was time to invest in a Western saddle for me and after a couple of false starts, she saw sense and contacted Maria. I must say I am very glad she did so because the saddle she eventually bought was fitted so professionally and carefully that it has been very comfortable all these years. It was good to have a saddle fitted by someone who put my longterm comfort first, because, as I said there were a couple of false starts by people who lacked Maria’s caring attitude to me.
I have spent the intervening years being ridden regularly, at least five times a week and I can honestly say I have never suffered a twinge. I’ve had physiotherapy once or twice a year during this time and the therapists have all been surprised at how good the condition is of my back. They attribute this to the great fit of my saddle.
Now I am twenty I will shortly be having the saddle properly checked again by Maria and I will let you know how that goes.
