So how do you like it? Tell us how it fits. What does it weigh?

I like the Pampa :). It's light, about 12 lbs, rigged with English girth and 2 inch Blevins leathers. Fiberglass tree. I tried it last Friday and am going to do another 10 miler Wednesday and Friday.

It was weird for the first few miles with the more English type leathers (position and lack of fenders) I kept bumping her sides...but after I worked on getting my seat right I got the hang of it and wasn't bumping her anymore.

I wasn't sore after 10 miles of trotting and gaiting and I was actually having fun posting while my TWH was getting an F for gaiting and trotting instead. The seat was comfy, as was my leg position.

The only thing I didn't like was the English rigging as the saddle slipped back which happened the last time I tried English rigging with this horse. So it may be me not tightening it enough or my mares back.

It looks like the girth attaches in the middle of the saddle rather than towards the front. Is that correct? I have looked at these saddles on line and I think they look nice.

It does attach pretty far back. It's supposed to...but it moved back significantly on the ride. I'm going to try a breastcollar tomorrow and if I keep it, maybe a mohair endurance cinch? Anyone tried that? Thoughts?

Can you hook the loop on the cinch to the breast collar to keep it in place?
    07-16-2013, 10:52 PM
There isn't a ring on the cinch but I plan on sewing a little webbing to creat a ring to attach too. Hopefully that works. :)

The ring and webbing I sewed worked :). The saddle didn't move with the breastcollar and one hole tighter. :).

The saddle worked really well! I love the position it puts my legs in.

I believe the saddle search may be over for Selena & I!!!

We recently tried a Big Horn endurance saddle and to our surprise it fit! Even sweat marks, no sore back, and the fat mare is still happy going down the trail so its a thumbs up from me

Bumping this up as well as showing off. I got some new additions to my endurance tack. LOVE them. So comfy for Mana and I.

Keep showing off, everyone!
