It's here! Right on time, my King Series Classic Distance Rider arrived in just enough time for me to try on, adjust, and prep for tomorrow's three day ride! (Note, I would use a more broken in saddle if we were going to do anything super challenging, but the group I'm going with will walk the entire three days.)
Though not a long trial, tonight I believe third time is the charm! Yes, that's right, I sent saddles back and this is the third one since my tedious decision over a month ago. Trying various saddles, and experiences out did help me decide on this model, though.
As as I told Liz, when I fist looked at this saddle I thought it was kind of ugly, that is, until my 6-hour ride with Dolly. Then, King Series Distance Rider became my jam! I knew, for all the things I am wanting to do, this saddle is what would get the job done in my price range.
Fun fact, I ordered the saddle online from Statelinetack.com and they could not have been more helpful when it came to all the returns, etc. I highly recommend their patient and attentive customer service! After all the discounts were said and done I only paid $344.42 for this beauty. Oh, and when I told the company I needed it for a ride in less than 10 days, they did everything within their power to make that happen. Thank you!
I want to wait until after the ride to give a full review, but what do you think? Jean-Luc and me are ready to conquer some "Man From Snowy River" terrain! (Absolutely not!)
