Needless to say - we didn't go looking for deep water with the RP saddle!
We ended up doing ten-miles in four hours, not a lot in mileage, but a long time for only the second ride in the RP. I dismounted - again so pleased to not be sore! Once home, I unsaddled Farah & though I know the value of even sweat patterns is often debated - Farah's was perfect! No soreness anywhere. The waves on her withers had been getting better with the new Supracore pad. They were certainly no worse. With the way the panels go over the withers, I hope to see them less & less!
It's not as though I do two or three Endurance rides a month - as many do. This year, with the continuing heat - it may be that the only one we do, is the one we did! What we do - is miles... Lots & lots of miles over varied terrain, technical trails, slow, fast & sometimes very fast :-) I need a saddle that will hold up to that over the long haul. I do so wish RP had a version with some skirting - somewhere to hang all my stuff from... But something that works physically - for us both is the goal!
Another very positive ride, this time for comfort over hours of time on the trail~
