    :

    I bought my Merci 3 years ago at the Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio. Jochen was there and talked about the importance of fitting the female anatomy. I had been riding a western saddle but, as I have gotten older, my hips were complaining as the western saddle was so wide. I had to take 2 Aleve before I rode. After 2 hours, my hips were very sore. Then I bought my Merci. Now when I ride, I do not take any Aleve . I ride 2 hours everyday and up to 4 hours at different parks that I ride at. I clocked 300 trail riding hours on my Arabians last year. I will be 74 on April 22. The narrow twist of the Merci is perfect for older riders. It is easier to go up and down hills as this saddle keeps you right in place. The joy of riding has been returned to me. Happy trail to all of you that use this saddle for this purpose.

Testimonials

My horse is short-backed with a laid-back shoulder. As she progresses in her work she gets even shorter! My Schleese saddle fitter suggested either modifications to my Triumph, or the Obrigado, since I couldn't face three weeks without a saddle, I ordered the Obrigado. Even though my Triumph had been recently refitted, I noticed an immediate improvement in my horse’s way of going, and I noticed that I no longer had to "squiggle around" to get in the right spot. I was there from the moment I sat on the saddle.
