Just wanted to thank you for coming to Millbrook. It is hard to believe a saddle can make such a difference to both horse and rider, for good or bad! Both horses are going in a more relaxed state, raising their backs easily and getting their legs under them. Both are picking up canters on either rein. I rode the small one for 2.5 hours through the Ganny on Sunday, up and down hills and the saddle remained in position and he was a happy boy. I had no hip or ankle pain at all. After getting home I walked the dog and then rode the Canadien. In the summer I would not have been able to even think of doing that as my hip would have been so sore. I feel 40 years younger and would not hesitate to event again if I had the horse and a proper Schleese saddle. I might even be looking forward to doing Dressage with Duc, or at least reining with Laddie!
Thanks again and hope you and Charlie had a good trip home!
