Since getting Abbey I’ve had a relatively cheap saddle that’s done the job while she’s been developing and maturing. She’s 7 now and after a 16 months of consistent work her muscles are developing well; the time has come to invest in a good one.
I’ve looked at quite a few and really liked the Ideal Impala but a friend, who’s also got a Connie, discovered AH (Andrea Hicks) saddles. She was really struggling to something that would fit her 4 year old who’s high withers. But she had Steph Bloom from AH Saddles out and was really impressed with the range, the holistic approach and the level of service she has received.
When I sat on her pony for a fitting I fell in love with the saddles too.
So Steph came out and I tried all her saddles (or near enough!) First up the flatwork saddles – I tried two dressage (the Phoenix Classic, left, and the Heathland, top right) and the working hunter (bottom right).
