A New Seat

Maura G greatly assisted me with a very busy and focused saddle search yesterday. We found a used saddle online, picked it up, tried it out, and really liked it, so I purchased it to be Mara Bs new saddle! Fortunately many factors all came together, so today Mara B and I had our first ride in it.

Saddle fit is critical and an art I have learned, it must fit both horse and rider. I had naively been “clothes pinning” or pinching her withers with the other saddle I was using ☹️ Mara is moving out so much more comfortably now. So after our warmup in the outdoor arena we headed out around the stable grounds and to the lower cow pasture.

This gorgeous flowering tree was our additional extra special treat to enjoy along with our new saddle comfort!

  1. the photos of the pretty trees look so “springy”. Such a beautiful time of year to be on a horse.

    Saddle looks great too. Is that the new saddle pad that you purchased with the saddle? It looks very good, too.
