My trial model of the Specialized Eurolight arrived here yesterday afternoon. Its a gorgeous light saddle and the fit kit came with the whole shebang–stirrups, girth, pad, etc. I thought I had more like 30 days to try it out but turns out I’ve only got 8 days then I have to mail the whole shebang back and put my deposit toward a saddle or get it back. I’m really hoping for the former but we’ll see. Not much time to see if its really going to fit Blaze and Desire and me, especially since rain is coming tomorrow and the next day. There is a low chance of showers this weekend and my husband finishes work so the truck will be around so I’m hoping to get out and do some miles at Lake Oroville on the weekend. I’m going to watch the fit cd right after I post this and mess around with it today but at the most I’ll be able to get 5 or 6 miles on it from home today, as the vet is coming at 2 to give Sheza her shots. I’m more worried about it fitting Blaze than Desire but we’ll see!
Starting to plan ahead for the 2012 AERC season, making up my ride calendar in one of the many windows I have open at the moment…I know time flies and before I know it will be mid April and time for my first endurance ride with Desire–plus that same weekend Sheza will be 1 yr old already! Ahh! Well we have a long wet winter before that happens but its good to be prepared.
