Brighteyes, do you have an older model euro light? I'm looking at getting a eurolight, don't know if I should buy new or go used though

Thanks PhantomHorse! :)


Faustinblack, it's pretty new. Bought new a year ago. Warning: never, ever deal directly with Specialized. Their customer service sucks. Find a rep in your area and go through them.

I've heard horror stories. I've been dealing with a rep. He's letting me ride in a trail master cause that's all he has. He told me that the euro light saddle is only good for riders that ride in two point the whole time. That true?

So so. I do a lot of two point -- I jump in my specialized in addition to its primary function as an endurance saddle -- but I also post. I still ride like a hunter/jumper, so "light seat" is my life. I don't do a lot of sitting trot, if that's what he's referring to. It IS more comfortable to sit trot in a trailmaster.

Why would it only be good for two point?

[I am trying to imagine what would make someone say that and am only coming up with silly cartoon-like images of tacks on the seat or something as a reason.]

I've got no clue. The seat in the trail master isn't very comfortable to sit trot either, but I post so it doesn't matter to me. I was just curious to see what y'all thought. I'm going with the eurolight cause you can change out the seat, it's smaller and I hate fenders.

I am just now trying to get into endurance and I am still riding in my favorite western saddle. It is a Saddle King of Texas (Ozark Leather Co.) I found in a flea market some years back for a steal. I believe its 20 or so years old and it is the best saddle I have ever had or ridden in. I will probably use it in my first endurance ride since a new one isn't in the budget at the moment. I was considering riding in my English saddle but it doesn't fit my horse very well so I don't want to train in it or use it.

However, I had a dream last night I bought a specialized endurance saddle and was very disappointed when I woke up lol.
