Mary Collins and Cimmy placing 1st in a Competitive Pleasure Horse–treeless, bitless and shoeless!
“Hi Paulita! Just wanted to let you know I completed my 5th CTR this fall on my Classic WITH NO SORE BACK!!! This is awesome accomplishment. What I’ve ended using with it is the HAF pad with 1 inch firm Skito Inserts cut down from another pad. I’m thinking of adding a bit of felt to the front half or so to see if I can get a shade more wither clearance. Right now, I’m not using the panels. I like the way the saddle fits better without them.
I have a couple of treed saddles I’m going to sell, and I’m thinking about getting a DKR with the extra-long cutback. Have to see how the $$ goes.
I rode Cimmy on a pleasure ride with one of the treed saddles the other day- he was not a happy camper!
People have been commenting at the rides on how much calmer and relaxed Cimmy is this fall. No shoes, no bit. No tree… Seems to be working.
Oh yes- Cimmy placed 1st in Competitive Pleasure Horse :-). ”
