    Too bad about the saddle, Joe. I rode with a lady a while back that took her horse to "Horse Town" in Atlanta and tried on about every saddle and pad they had to find the right one. That is probably a good plan.

    My saddle could stand to fit better. It worked better when I first bought it, then my horse gained some weight. Perhaps she could stand to lose a few pounds.

    I had a Crestridge that I returned also. The seat and fit for me was so comfortable , but did not at all fit the horse.

    Try..... try.... again

    ^^ Horse Town in a nice place. I go there every chance I get. It's basically the only tack store we south Georgians have. I've gotten saddle fitted there. The staff are very patient and will let you try on everything in the store.

    Here's Baby Girl! Specialized Eurolight saddle, black dressage pad, purple biothane breast collar from Animal Tackers, mohair girth, and ghetto (also purple) rope halter thing.

    And some ribbons. We were flagging trail that day.

    Thanks! It really is. It might be 12 pounds. All I know is that weak five foot tall me can thrown it up on a 17.2 hand warmblood.

    Is the saddle made out of synthetic material? How is the fit?

    Nope, it's leather. And it fits awesome. It uses a "fitting cushion" you move up or down to adjust width, and shims to make sure the cushion has uniform contact with your horse. It's really easy to do.

    It took me a couple of rides and tinkering to get it just right for Baby Girl, but after it was right it was perfect. I noticed improvement in her movement after only a few rides.

    Now that I actually HAVE proper endurance tack, I can post. My new to me specialized saddle. I just tried it on my guy today. I need to order new shims, but it wasn't terrible as it was.

    You lucky dogs.

    As an aspiring endurancer (?), I drool over the tack.
    Birthday is in a few months, but I think I'm going to ask for a Garmin GPS watch and then save the tack for Christmas. I'm tempted to sell my CC to buy a saddle, but I know that's jumping the gun. I'm just excited. LOL.
