Hi there,
I think the idea behind the Othoflex saddles are great, however my
friend over here had two, and she could not get either to fit her arab I
don't know how may telephone calls and faxes that went back and forth in the
end she sold both her saddles. One comment she made was that the panels
seemed very unyeilding.
I have also been told by someone else that he had come across uneven
saddles and the gap at the top of saddles did differ quite abit from one
saddle to another.
There are now a couple of saddlers in the UK trying to do something
similar to the Othoflex saddles but really the price is still prohibiative,
not to mention most people want and English saddle that looks traditional
even if you hide the panels under booties etc.
