Going on 60
now... even I
can't believe that number!! I've been riding since I was 8.. first riding lessons were in Hawaii (Dad was career Navy) of all places!! From that moment on I carried a crop and wore cowboy boots. My sisters had Barbies, I had a bunch of those great plastic horses with manes and tails you could brush. Read Walter Farleys Black Stallion Series, rode anything and everything I could all over the world until we landed in Virginia Beach Virginia where the Admirals wife, who was being transfered, gave us her wonderful and very well trained TB. Hanging out at the stables had paid off big time! Moved to the midwest with my new husband in the late 70's and discovered a whole new world of horses. From sport QH to GAITED!! I've been trail riding Fox Trotters and TWH's ever since. Saddle fitting has always been an interest of mine from day one when I was saddling those wonderful plastic steeds.... although I must admit to riding more bareback than with saddle in the early early days... and discovered in the 80's that no one seemed to know how to fit the western and endurance type saddles. I kept hearing... just throw another blanket on .. that'll make it fit. So I made it my business to find the saddles that would work..the how and why... and there the real story begins.
