Saddle Search Update
My Zaldi is on Ebay. If it sells, I guess I will ride bareback. For some reason there is a lot of interest in this saddle. Why I do not know 🙂
I did hear back from the Stubben rep who just happens to be up in this area the next few weeks (DEVON AND FHI!) so we are going to try some Stubbens on Remus the week of Fair Hill. (It helps to have your horse boarding very close to Fair Hill. How exciting. Right?)
In a perfect world, I want this (and it is what she thinks would work well). Of course with my budget that probably won’t happen but she says some of the other non-monoflap saddles are very reasonable and she may have some Demos for sale! So she is game and willing to try to fit Remus and see how the different Stubbens work and fit on him. She actually said after working on so many bay thoroughbreds lately (no offense to bays or thoroughbreds LOL), she is excited to work on a horse of a different color! Since Stubben was so quick to get back to me I am definitely giving Stubben a shot!
So now I have to decide if I want to take any of the offers for the Zaldi. Luckily barn mates have offered saddles to use in between but none of them are jump saddles. I know Emily at May As Well Event is jumping in a dressage saddle. SO maybe we can start a revolution??
I am very excited Fair Hill is coming up soon! I get to see blogger friends, I get to attend the YEH Workshop on the Thursday and Friday and I get to try some saddles. OH and see CC on Saturday. ADD IN the fact that a lot of saddle vendors will be at FHI as well and I can just giggle from the sheer excitement of it all!! Hopefully the weather cooperates. We need rain desperately even though the temps have gone more Fall like. The ground will be hard as rocks at FHI if we don’t get some rain. I would prefer the rain to come BEFORE THE EVENT thanks very much!
