In March I got my first horse, the 16.3 hand dappled grey gelding by Coronet Obolensky; the horse with more scope than I could ever dream of needing.
I’ve owned a CWD since 2015-- it’s an 18" SE02 with 4C flaps and a 4.5" tree. It fits my horse extremely well and it fits me pretty well. But here’s the catch: I rode in my friend’s 18" Antares Connexion over the weekend and it was so comfortable. The next day I rode in my saddle and it literally sent striking pain up my back. So I think I’m on the hunt for a new saddle-- probably Antares since it was super comfortable when I rode in it. I’ve heard whispers of trees breaking, but I’ve never known someone with that actually happening. Does anyone know a lot about Antares? Any insight here would be greatly appreciated.
