Four years ago, I purchased two endurance Arabians: one for my twelve
year old daughter, and one for myself.
"Buy Boz saddles," urged the seller of the horses.
On her advice, I did purchase a Boz saddle for my daughter.
"But no way," I thought, "will I splurge on one for myself. Why
should I?" You see, I had at the time a perfectly good old English
Stuben saddle: very comfortable, like a pair of favorite worn
But a few months later, what happened? I began to secretly hope that
my daughter would not want to ride. Then, I could swipe HER Boz
saddle! Not only was it dreamily comfortable for me, but I liked the
way it put my weight forward, helping my mare zip up the steep slopes of
the Santa Monica Mountains where we live. I also enjoyed skipping the
saddle pad adjustment on the English saddle: with a Boz saddle, you
just throw one piece of equipment on your
equine's back, and off you go: no fitting the girth through tight pad
straps or adjusting the position of the pad. The saddle itself is
surprisingly light and easy to handle.
I must admit that within a few months, I ditched my penny-pinching and
sprung for my own Boz saddle. What a wonderful investment -- a
lifetime of comfort for both me and my mount.
I recommend a Boz saddle, with no reservations, to all my riding
