I have recently purchased a GFS saddle for my pony mare. It is older, I cannot find any similar current model, but has the screws GFS, little visible mark on the leather,... The leather was a bit dry, so I put almost half liter of oil into it, but seems quite nice right now. Liza seems quite OK with it, it is a bit small for me, but she cannost have longer seat, it would be too long for her back.
Does anyone of you have experience with these saddles?
^^How do I get the dirt off the iron???
And a question about fitting.... The mare is downhill. Quite a lot. I was told by one trainer thet I should put the whither part higher-with the whither pad (thicker in the front), and I was told by another that I should not do that, since she is downhill, that the saddle should be a bit lower in front, and if I put the front higher, she will have sore back... I tried riding with both options and Liza seemed fine with both...
