Hello

Both of my horses loved your saddle. My mare, especially as she is highly trained in the art of Marialva (Portuguese classical riding). She is very senstive to the aides and has a very strong back.  She loved the saddle..it was almost like riding bareback in that she was that responsive to my seat aides. I could tell right away when saddling her how much happier she was...with my old saddle, she would stomp and look miserable when being saddled up..this time she just stood peacefully..even when I adjusted things..took the saddle on, adjusted the pads..put back on..she just seemed content.

I loved the sadddle too. It is rather like a cross between riding in a traditrional saddle and bareback.  I am very short (5 feet tall) and have short legs...and am very lightweight...so often I can barely feel the horse through the saddle.  Your saddle really feels different..and it seems as if it is easier for my horse to 'feel' my aides.

My trainer Joao said that your schooling saddle is almost identicle to one in Portugal called a 'semi saddle'. It is used in bullfighting presentation/display...as opposed to the actaul bullfight, where a much heavier bull fighting saddle is used. He loves this type of saddle...and was amazed at your price. My trainer lives in a different part of the country from me..so I could not have him come to try it...but just seeing the picture, he said this is a beautiful saddle..and so much cheapier in terms of prive.  He was also impressed with the quality.

Thank you again for all of your help..and above all, your beautiful saddle. I will probably order stirrups and other things in the future.
