I ride in a County perfection. It made an immediate difference in Mariska. We have struggled with ground cover especially in the one tempis. Instantly she covered more ground and had bigger and more expressive changes, that was a problem I was working on for months! A correct saddle made all the difference. www.countysaddles.com .
