    Thumbs up Heather Soones-Booher, Saddle Fitter

    I just got home from a most wonderful saddle fitting experience.
    Heather Soones-Booher of Saddles 101 came out all the way from Pennsylvania to potentially sell me a new or used saddle.

    Instead, she made a few minor but significant adjustments to my current saddle and advised that she thought it was the best fit for both the horse and I. She told me gently why I didn't need what I thought I needed.

    Here I was, with an open checkbook, expecting to lay out for a new saddle, and she did not take advantage of me.

    So, two thumbs up from me if you are in the market for a saddle or a saddle fitter.

    Another "thumbs up" for Heather. She understands being on a budget and can do magic with her reflocking and advice on padding. Never pushes for a saddle sale, but helps you find an affordable solution to keep your horse comfortable. She's great!

    I'm sure if you contact Heather she'll be happy to tell you her prices, and then you can decide what you want to do.
