New review here from our awesome reviewer Kristin Phillips and her little sidekick!
Hey y’all coming at you with a review from one of our littlest riders here at Decidedly Equestrian. We reviewed the Saddle Sidekicks made for any rider to transform an adult size western saddle into a comfortable and safe alternative for our little equestrians.
This product is more than just a pair of stirrups strapped to your saddle horn! The durable corded elastic not only attaches at the gullet, fork and horn of the saddle but it also attaches at the cantle in the rear to provide extra stability and safety. It also took a total of 6 seconds to “install” from one saddle to another! (Can you say AWESOME!)
Our little review writer was impressed with the foam seat being comfortable and she really enjoyed the adjustable closed stirrups. It gave her a nice seat in the saddle and made her feel more confident and secure. In her own words she did not feel “floppy” and really loved riding in style with the super FUN colors.
For any young rider safety is VERY important, we had a mild flop that resulted in a not so graceful dismount and the Saddle Sidekicks did their job. Our little rider did not get hung up, the Sidekicks stayed in place, and everyone came out uninjured! As a parent and an equestrian I highly recommend these stirrups for any little rider for a safe and fun ride in the saddle!
