I've just seen an ad for the Sports saddle. They are not on sale here in the
UK, so I don't know anything about them. What can you tell me about them, and
how are they different from normal saddles? How much do they cost, the ad
gives a price list for all the accessories, but not the saddle itself.

Had the vet out to look at our youngster with the puffy foreleg. She said there
wasn't anything wrong with the tendon, and couldn't explain the slight
swelling. He has got a touch of mud fever, so it could be that. She also
wasn't at all happy with his shoeing. He trotted up OK, but then was
slight lame for a few strides after a flexion test. Since he was lame a couple
of times as a two year old - we never did find out what was wrong - she is going
to see him again on Wednesday and maybe do some xrays to be on the safe side.
Fingers crossed its nothing serious.
