Dear Jochen, July 4th marked the end of the trial period for Anne Lynn's new saddle, & I feel compelled to tell you that it was well worth the 4 month wait!! I've always been aware that proper saddle fit is extremely important, but my sensitive little mare seemed like an exception. As you know, I had her back x-rayed, & to my relief, her back is fine! I even put her on Regu-Mate, thinking the temperamental problems may have been due to hormone pain! You proved to me that the minor saddle fitting issues I was having with her, were enough to cause her some major discomfort, & thus make her virtually unridable! From the first day u fitted her with her new saddle to the present, she has been a new horse! Each day brings marked improvement, & more importantly, she's being compliant & happily doing as she's asked! I'm also happy to report that my vet, trainer, & masseuse have all noticed a physical change in her for the better! She's developing new muscle through her neck, back, & hind quarter, & NO SORENESS as before! Yesterday, July 18th, marked her 6th birthday, & what a happy & hopeful one it was! There's a long road ahead of us, but I can now say that there's a bright future for us to grow together as trusting dressage partners. Thank you so much for all you've done, & for sharing your years of knowledge & research! You've certainly made me a believer in you & your product!
