New saddle day!

Originally my fitter was going to bring by the new saddle on Saturday, the day AFTER my lesson, but asked if I wanted it Friday instead…DUH. How could I say no to that?! Specially to have it in time for my dressage lesson!

Fitter originally came out in September-ish to fit my Adam Ellis since I was having some mega issues with it and it had not been looked at since I bought it at Easter time of 2017. September-ish was also when I kind of decided I was going to take a step back from jumping. Perfect timing I suppose, because she told me that it didn’t exactly fit that great – yippee. I had half guessed that myself, just did not want to hear it.

The dressage saddle hunt did not commence for a few more weeks due to many things. Funds, timing, indecisiveness etc. There was definitely no money to go the custom route at that time either.

Have I mentioned how much I hate saddle shopping?

It didn’t last long before I decided I didn’t want to deal with trying to trial people’s saddles and decided to order in a custom Ryder Zara.

And it finally got here!!

I ordered this without riding in it….which was maybe a slightly dumb idea, but I did it anyways. Fitter and I talked for ages about what I wanted, and looked at about a billion different saddles before we ordered this. I gotta admit, I was slightly skeptical I would LOVE it. I put all my faith in fitter. She did not do me wrong.

I LUUURRRVEEE IT!!! Pony loves it so far. I could not be happier with it!

Shout out to my fitter Kelsey !

I can’t wait to see how things progress now that I have the right saddle for the work that we are doing !
