About Me

My photo
Young and wild. Sane and grounded. Im a firecracker, but one of the most collected people at the same time. I'm direct, so forgive me for not sugar coating what I have to say. If it shouldn't be said, I probably won't say it. But that doesn't mean I won't want to. I'm not perfect, please forgive me, and tell me if you're offended. I may or may not care.

confirmation critique!

Comment away!

  1. not really a critique, but a comment. my saddle fitter commented the other day that my mare's back was rather "flat" once her withers finish sloping- your guy has a very similar shape- which can make saddle fitting hard as many saddles, like my stubben are too "curvy". have you had issues with this? what do you ride in?

  2. I ride in a stubben siegfried to jump, but I have a mattes underneath. He seems to do well in it, though I haven't really had it "fitted". I just check the normal points- width, interference with shoulder, height above withers, slope pommel-cantel. It fits well with the mattes.... dressage saddles, on the other hand, are seemingly impossible. I have a Charles de Kunffy, and although it has NO thigh block (ugh), it doesn't fit him horrendously, so again, i ride with the mattes.
    I wish I could get something really nice... just not in the budget!
