Christel Fingerroos - Thank you for visiting Norway

I would like to present my sincere thanks for you visiting Norway and introducing me to your saddles.  Anne visited me and fitted a saddle to my two horses, a fjord horse gelding and a Norwegian dole mare.  Both are equally wide, Anne had to stretch her measurements of the withers to the limits of her gage.  They also both have very short backs.  Lucky for me since one saddle fits them both. It was a new experience for both horse and rider to try one if your saddles.  Neither one of my horses quite understood what was happening and were very attentive to me. My mare did not buck or run out on me once.  The gelding suddenly found shoulder freedom in his canter and actually managed a good, loose trot. As for the rider, she also struggled a bit to manage to follow the bigger, looser movements on her horses.  I felt I had forgotten how to ride.  Now I cannot wait to get in the saddle and get going.  I do believe this will make things easier for both me and my four legged friends.  As a horse masseuse I see too much of sore backs, withers, leg problems and other issues due to ill fitting saddles..  I will do my best to increase the knowledge about them.  Thank you, Regards Christel
