An update from successful endurance rider, Lisa Franks.

"I have used various Solution saddles for over 9 years and now it is time for an update ...


Our welsh section C, Codeneirin Solo, has now been retired having completed nearly 4,000 competitive kilometres, initially in a Solution Energist saddle before upgrading to a SMART Native saddle.  He thrived in a RigidFree Solution saddle and after ten competitive seasons, his back is unblemished and as perfect as when we started to compete.  (Read more from Lisa Franks and Solo here http://news.solutionsaddles.com/2014/12/lisa-franks-coedeneirin-solo-endurance.html)










I now have a new horse, Cloonmung Mist, a six year old Connemara.  I bought her last summer and she has completed her three novice rides successfully. 


She has upgraded to Open level and is now being prepared to step up in distance and hopefully by the end of this season, we aim to have upgraded to Advanced level qualify to compete in FEI competitions.


We have just purchased a new SMART SPORT VT GP saddle  for her and she is going very well in it – her first outing will be on 1st March 2015.  

Before acquiring her new saddle, she was getting very strong and stroppy when ridden out but has now has reverted to her laidback self as she is obviously more comfortable.  Her flatwork has improved and in just two weeks, her back has started to develop which can only bode well for the future.


Lisa Franks, 2015.
