Thought I would tell you the accomplishments of my horse this past 2011 season in NATRC competitive trail wearing her custom made Crest Ridge Sinclair saddle. RPH Queso, in her first year of competition, starting out in the open division.  Regionally she placed 2nd open lightweight horse, first open lightweight team. High point open Paint Horse. She carried me to 1st open lighweight horsemanship and the overall high point horsemanship award.  Nationally she placed 5th in open lightweight standings, earned a National Championship and was High Point Paint Horse. She carried me to 1st place in open lightweight horsemanship standings.

Deb, Thanks for the new Sinclair saddle you made for The Navigator, my AERC horse. I took an opportunity to have you measure and fit "Gaiter" for his new saddle. "Gaiter" showed an immediate improvement in his gait and attitude with his new saddle. "Gaiter" has done very well as a limited distance endurance horse and I'm sure he'll improve with the excellent fit of this saddle. I 'm enjoying the reduced stress on my legs and knees with the English stirrup leathers. We're both enjoying the significant weight reduction compared to my previous western trail saddle. For me, this is one of the most comfortable saddles I've ever ridden and is comfort ever important in endurance racing! Dawn

Dear Debra,

The difference in Herbie was astonishing. He took five steps and settled down to gaiting far better than he has since I bought him. And he stayed that way for two and a half hours of trail riding as well in deep snow with three other horses. HE is happy with the saddle and it was as obvious to my companions as it was to me.

Not only that, but there was about an hour's unsaddled break between the indoor test ride and resaddling him for the trail ride. Ordinarily, the little beastie would greet his saddle with pinned ears. When he saw the Sinclair coming at him again his ears were up and he made no protest about being cinched up either. That spoke volumes... I have tried many saddles over the years and I know when it's good within minutes. The Sinclair felt like "old home week" in seconds.

Thank you for all your help and your considerable expertise. You will definitely be getting recommendations from me to my friends who are looking for saddles. Everyone at my barn who saw the saddle asked about it and thought it handsome and comfy looking. Sharon
