Successful Endurance rider, Chris MacMillan, has just completed the Golden Horseshoe with her Connemara pony Glen.

 Successful Endurance rider, Chris MacMillan, has just completed the Golden Horseshoe with her Connemara pony Glen. Here is what she has to say about her wonderful Solution Saddle...

The start of the 80km Endurance Ride at the
Scottish Championships / Home International in July 2014.
  
“I was introduced to endurance as something different to do and a great way to get out and see new countryside.  We started with pleasure rides in 2012, and then competitive rides in 2013.  We were lucky enough to be picked to represent Scotland as novice horse/novice rider combination for the Home International held in 2013 at Barbary Castle, where we stepped up to 40km for the first time and won the class! 

In 2014 we moved on through the grades gaining Silver Thistle Final at Seacliff and Gold Thistle Final at the Scottish Championships where we once again represented Scotland in the Home International team but this time at 80km. 

Glen and I have now clocked up just over 1000km at endurance rides.  This, together with all our training miles and the varied other stuff we do (jumping lessons, dressage lessons and hunting), was all achieved in my Solution RigidFree™ saddle.   I love it because it is such a comfortable saddle for both me and my pony and still in fantastic condition after 6 years of heavy use.”
