I have had a magnificent 2014, I rode for the England Squad in Endurance at the Home International in Scotland in August where I completed an 87km ride over 2 days and achieved a GOLD, the highest result possible, I also achieved 2nd place in another event, I am so proud of my wonderful horse – Silver Prince Sadik. Another major achievement was gaining sponsorship from ‘Stable Environment’ and ‘Tuffa Footwear’. Stable Environment provided me with their ” Block the Shock Saddle Seat” and all I can say about this product is ‘WOW and WONDERFUL.’ I always suffer with lower back pain when I compete, the pain is excruciating and I have to take painkillers throughout the ride. I tested the “Block the Shock Saddle Seat” on the 7th September 2014 at the Boyton Hall Ride where I competed in the 81km ride. I wanted to test the Saddle Seat professionally and without bias so I rode 65km with the Saddle Seat and OMG I had no problems with my back, no pain at all, it was wonderful and unbelievable, an amazing product. I was so comfortable and pain free but most importantly my boy was moving beautifully because I wasn’t hindering him because of my pain. I removed the saddle seat for the last 15km and within 1km I could feel pain in my back and because I was in pain my boy also felt it and it affected his performance. I recommend this Saddle Seat to everyone it is unbelievable the way in which it worked for me.
