My derriere has been sitting in some pretty lovely saddles recently, as I try out multiple models in a quest for giant thigh blocks (something about that just sound awkward, doesn’t it?). While I adore my current M. Toulouse Aachen saddle that I’ve had for years, I just wish it wouldn’t let me slip into a slight chair seat… as comfortable as a chair seat is.
I tried out several Prestige saddles… the first a La Selleria model that was just too wide for Foster- a shame because it was a great deal!
Then I tried a Prestige Optimax…
but at 17″, it was way too small for my ghetto booty!
Then a Prestige Galileo…
I quite liked this saddle, but it was also 17″, and while more comfortable than the Optimax, I still think I need an 18″ seat. Of course, this is the most expensive saddle I’ve tried so far! Foster really liked this one too, stretching his back up into it and drooling obscenely all over his legs.
Tonight I get to try out my friend’s Bates Isabell saddle, which will be interesting as I’ve never sat in one of those! Exciting decisions ahead!
Meanwhile, we are up again to vote for on She Moved to Texas. We would love your vote! If you stopped by and found my ramblings at all interesting please leave us a comment! Happy Tuesday!
Saddles currently make me want to vomit. That being said, I hope I like my Prestige!
I bet you’ll love it! I just remembered I’ve also sat in a Prestige 2000 and loved that saddle too! I’m definitely a fan of Prestige 🙂 Can’t wait to see yours!
