As a dedicated owner/breeder who has devoted my life to helping horses, I care a lot about the welfare of my animals and their comfort and happiness. I have two young sibling Iberian Warmbloods that I bred myself, whose parents I also both showed extensively, and I’ve been over the moon with them – they have each won multiple National Championship titles and the 5 year old mare, Cregga, has been USEF’s Half Andalusian Horse of the Year twice. When I started them under saddle they both showed great aptitude, but I had a problem – both horses are incredibly sensitive and despite multiple custom saddles and custom fittings by experienced professionals, I still had constant problems with backsoreness and edema on their backs. I was devastated – nothing I tried worked! The horses constantly needed chiropractic and PEMF care and I refused to ride until I could find a saddle that actually worked.
That’s when a wonderful friend connected me to Tiffani and Nina and Hidalgo Saddlery! Their Roma PFT has finally been the answer to my problems. It has been the only saddle out of many to work for these sensitive youngsters – they love the three dimensional flexibility and I love the balance! The saddle is made with buttery soft leather, puts me in a good position, and most importantly keeps their backs comfortable, which is very important to me. Plus as they grow, I can change out the gullet as needed! Tiffani and Nina have been wonderful to work with, and Tiffani has spent so much time answer my (many!!) questions! So happy with my Roma PFT!
