Thanks to all our happy riders for some lovely photos, some of which will be used on our website! The winner of the Lemieux Saddle Blanket is Madison Tibbets for her 'all action' shot of Woody, displaying a lovely jump technique & his Harry Dabbs StudGuard Girth very well! Madsion rides in a Harry Dabbs Future FJ Jump Saddle - freeing up those shoulders beautifully!
Madison says : "Woody putting his Harry Dabbs stud girth to good use today in the 1.20 I use it everyday and after a year the condition of the leather is still like new".
