In the photo attached, we visited the Schleese booth at the Woodside Dressage Show in July, where we placed 1st (with a score of 67.718) and 2nd (with a score of 68.718) in classes against horses and professional riders. I am so lucky to have an amazing pony to ride and a saddle that keeps him so happy and healthy! :) Sincerely, Eva Larsen
