Modelling her saddle

Maddy is showing off her new, used saddle. I bought the Wintec Pro today from Glisan Street Saddlery. Linda is so great over there. She shows Arabians and knows just about everything there is to know about tack. When I first started thinking about getting a new saddle, I was really set on the Wintec Isabell. In talking to Linda, she said when the Isabell first came out she was selling about 20 a month and the maybe 3 Pros. Now she is selling 15 Pros and maybe one Isabell. She says the Isabell really tilts your pelvis forward and very few people can ride in that saddle. She said if you have any type of lower back issues or knee issues, the Isabell is definitely not the saddle for you, go with the Pro. So she talked me into a much more affordable saddle and I lucked out because she had a used 17 1/2 that looked brand new. Yeah!!!

Congrats on the new saddle, I hope you get many miles of happy riding with it. I have to say that after riding english all my life I love the western saddles. They are so comfortable.

Hope you are having a great weekend.
