Hi Denise, I don’t know if you remember me. I have a young horse that just turned 4 and I bought my saddle (triumph) in June in Ste-Julie. Just want to tell you that I really like my new saddle. I have no back issue so it’s great. My young horse likes it and he works really well. No more bucks!! I did my first two shows and won champion of my division with good results between 60.7% and 72.1%. Thanks, see you soon for a fitting!
