Kathy, I've not got a clue how to work this site, but I'll bet you can find my phone # in the book and give me a call. It'll be fine with me! Also, I am trying to find local Norene girls/ladies to start riding with regularly. It will be low keyed "old women" style riding at first, but if you're interested you can join up with us. I think it'll get better as summer goes along, but I expect it to be really low key at first. I met a lady just this weekend and we're already talking about riding on a regular basis. I am hoping my 15 yr old can learn with her daredevil 19 yr old. Anyway, Thanks, Linda
Hi Kathy, Thanks for the suggestion on shims. I need to talk to you to see what it is exactly, and how to do it. I've got 2 saddles to sell, and can use that to just buy a used replacement for him. It sounds silly but he is so tall, and turns so tight that I'd rather get a saddle that fits him properly than make do. We got him a couple years ago and it was love at first sight for my daughter, unfortunately they weren't a very good match at the time. He was very high strung and nervous, and she's been a timid type rider since she started riding.This year he seems to have lost a little weight and the same saddle she'd been using was allowed to show the problem at the withers. We gave him some time off to relax and repair, then tried my saddle on him. The difference in him was amazing! He was relaxed, and responsive, even had the bottom lip clapping in time to his steps. I would rather get him taken care of with the proper saddle than rig this one to make do. I'm borderline harrassing everyone within my area to start riding, and this year we've been rained out every weekend. If you'd be interested in riding some this year, give me a shout. I am so ready to go it's not even funny!! Thanks again, Linda
He has a very good pedigree. (I looked it up back through Midnight Sun) I'm always fascinated by pedigrees of the TWH and SSH. Spooky looks black and slick, my black horses always get sun bleached and I don't know how to stop it without keeping them in stalls. Thanks for the info. Happy trails
