Fitting My Fjord - Hello Centerline, Hello Balance
July 18, 2012
Shortly after purchasing my Fjord mare, I set about finding a saddle. I was an English rider, but had also learned to love trail riding, We found Paulita and Freefrom after much trial and error. Hello centerline & balance! My bottom doesn’t hurt, not even a little bit. My saddle fits two mares and they're happy. Please give a treeless saddle a try. I had no idea what I was missing.
