Well after MULTIPLE saddle fittings and DAYS of being ridden, my Mom finally committed to a saddle. *Phew – no more fittings for me*. After riding in just about every brand available, and finding that either she or I disliked them in some way (fit for her, fit for me, comfort for either one of us, price, etc.), mom decided an Equipe Saddle was the way to go! And Equipe Central USA helped us with the fitting and ordering of our new saddle!
And to mom’s surprise she ended up falling in LOVE with a brown saddle even though she was only interested in black saddles. (Why wouldn’t she, I am a shade of brown, after all). She (or we…) specifically decided on the Equipe Olympia Dressage saddle in Brown. And because you can’t have a brown saddle and a black bridle, she had to order a new double bridle (it even matches Charlotte Dujardin’s – except in brown). Now to wait while it is custom ordered to our specifications.
Now because she switched our tack’s color scheme she is on the hunt for a new show color scheme. So far she has fallen in love with Black Helmet/Boots/Jacket, Creme Breeches/Gloves/Saddle Pad and then some form of color on the points or fly bonnet. Be on the lookout for her new tack/equipment/clothing shopping adventures.
