|The shine is strong with this one|
On Tuesday the saddle fitter came back out. Technically the husband came out, they work as a husband/wife team. They both were out to pick up the saddle and the husband brought it back, I have been talking almost exclusively with the wife. Did I mention he was 20 minutes late, with no notice?

|Was disappointed, it doesn't look like it fits. Still.|
|After 2 rides, looks better IMO|
|Left shoulder, after 2 rides. And a sweaty horse.|
|Right shoulder, after 2 rides. And a sweaty horse.|
|After 2 rides, seems to mold to her better|
Are you joking?!?! Not even 4 minutes? There was NO way I was going to allow myself to post that kind of result. Emma would, justifiably, laugh my ass off of the blog. Geez.
After a bit of resting, I tried again. Around and around we went, changing directions, starting at a trot but quickly picked up the canter as Mia wanted to go. Okay Mia, we can go, but we will go for a while!
Finally when I was about to give out, Mia was definitely tired and my legs wanted to die, I pulled out my phone. And blinked. Again. Really?? 6:40. Holy cow! I didn't stop, I pushed her forward and kept pushing both of us until we hit the 7 minute mark. And kept going. I REALLY wanted to make the 7:15 mark but I crumbled at 7:09 (and technically 7:09:087, almost 7:10!!). Holy cow, that is a record for me, I have never had two point for that long. I am crediting my saddle for the improvement because it is really easy to hold position in it :-D
