I had a really nice yak with Carla
yesterday morning. We must've talked for an hour.
I told her I was very satisfied with the Sensation.
No problems at all and every ride is better than the
one before. The other saddles are going on Ebay. That's
the best recommendation I can come up with! Incidentally,
I am happy to talk with prospective buyers. I've had
great experiences with you with the Bob Marshall and
now with the Sensation and am happy to recommend you
and the Sensation highly.
Got my husband to take some pix Sunday
but both Lucy and I looked so fat and dumpy, I need
to redo them. Don's tall and he was shooting us from
his eye line and that didn't help our appearance.
Of course, we ARE kinda fat and maybe dumpy on a bad
day. The saddle, however, looked great. I'll take
some of Lucy saddled and I have one of us together
I can send that makes us look pretty good. Isn't it
always a shock when you don't look like the mental
picture you have?
Off to do chores. I think Carla will
buy the Sensation. I think it's a good choice for
what she wants to do and the horse she has.
Are you in the market for a new saddle?
Distance and recreational riders owe it to their horses
& themselves to try the "Sensation"
Ride made by Nickers Saddlery of Penticton, BC.
After riding many miles and just assuming
pain was part of the process, I took a "Sensation"
for a ride. I was nothing short of astonished at the
difference it made in the level of increased comfort
for my horse and my body. I rode 3 hours with no discomfort
for the first time in my life!
I then asked a friend to ride in it.
She is an excellent rider and horsewoman but has been
forced into a chair seat riding in a saddle she has
outgrown. Her posture and seat were instantly near
perfect in the "Sensation".
The best way to describe the "Sensation"
is to think of it as a true interface between your
bum and the horse's back. Both sides of this interface
are taken into consideration in the design and function
of this product. The result is a happy bum on a happy
As an equine vet and chiropractor, I
am very impressed with the performance of the "Sensation".
I am recommending it to my clients, especially those
struggling with back sore horses.
I discovered that the design of the "Sensation"
allows it to be used on a range of horse back sizes
and shapes. I am able to use it on all three of the
horses I ride with only minor adjustments.
Treeless technology may not be for every
horse and rider. However, the revolutionary design
features, quality of workmanship and suitability for
the sport of distance in particular, make it a must
I cannot encourage riders enough to
try the "Sensation"! Remember - before you
shop for a saddle, make sure your horse's back is
sound and healthy!
My daughter got a chance to try the
Sensation tonight. She absolutely loved it! We did
have to use our 30" girth. Her Morgan is quite
a big girthed boy. But he was like a different horse
tonight and we haven't seen this big of a change in
him even on very good nights.
We are definitely going to order one.
All I kept hearing as my daughter was riding was 'WOW'.
And it fits her wonderfully!
I completed my first 25 mile endurance
ride yesterday. Even though I've only had the saddle
about 10 days, it felt like I've had it for 10 years.
It was so comfortable. I resolved the stirrup issue
when I put my old barrel racing stirrups on it. They
worked great and my feet/ankles didn't hurt until
about the last mile. There was a girl there riding
a BM barrel saddle with EZ Ride stirrups and there
I was with the Sensation with Ox-bow stirrups. We
had to laugh at our mixed up saddles.
Anyway just wanted to let you know
I did it. My big old QH girl never quit. I was so
proud of her. I think she was the only QH at this
ride so we were kind of an oddity. I had one person
come up and wanted to check out my saddle, but I was
in the Vet check line and didn't have time to talk
very long. She really like the way it looked. Thanks
for all your help. When I get a picture of my girl
in it. I'll send it to you.
