Wow, Wow, Wow (Kate Bush Style)

Today was saddle fitting day with Louise from FTE, the Wow Headquarters.

I love the concept of the Wow saddle and can't imagine using any other brand now - the flexibility of the Y bar tree, larger bearing surface, double stirrup bars, moveable flaps and total adjustability....what's not to love!

Louise does all Richard Maxwells Wow's and as he's just up the road she was able to pop in on the way back from two days up there, the brilliant news is that she thought the saddle was perfect for Bally - right size and panels, just very low on air and as she's lost condition and muscle through being on box rest and out of work she'd gone down TWO head plate sizes :-(

Bally was much, much happier as we walked down the lane and back, really stretching forward into the contact and tracking up. As usual the air had to be adjusted to suit my daft crooked back and dodgy hip, but she had us swinging along nicely in harmony again.

Really means we can push on with the increasing work in the knowledge Bally is comfortable in her back :-D


  1. have to say, if i didn't have the vogue, i'd have probably gone for the WOW

  2. There is nothing I don't absolutely love about them dream would be a new one, in custom colours, but at about £2k for what I want it'll be a long old while before that's a reality!

  3. I will have to look into them if I decide to take up riding. Thank you for the advice.

  4. Alot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know. Indian suits online
