A bit of backstory. My dad is from England, and when my sisters and I were probably two years old he promised to take us and my mother to England some day. It’s been discussed late last year and early this year about finally making the trek next summer/fall.
Seeing as there’s no way my parents will ship my Leo to England for two weeks, my aunt who used to ride and still run’s her towns gymkhanas says she can most likely arrange a pony for me, and I’ll also definitely take a lesson or two with Clive Milkins. The reason I want to bring mine is it’s the only dressage saddle I’ve ever sat in that truly fits me, as I am so small. (I’m only 5’, and between 100-115lbs. The saddle is extremely narrow twist, with teeny thigh blocks, monoflap, and a 16.5 seat)
My question is, do you think it’s safe to fly with my CWD? Mum is worried that the plane will loose it, seeing as it’s too big to take as a carry on. What do you think? What have your experiences been flying with saddles?
