La selle en sois et confortable, mais une horreur la selle n'a fais que tournée et s'avancer sur les épaules de mon cheval en le bloquant malgré que j'ai sangler a fond la selle tourne j'ai du la ramener.

Brand response :

Bonjour Catherine,
Je vous remercie grandement de nous faire parvenir ce retour sur la selle synthétique SYNTHIA Fouganza. Je suis désolée qu'elle ne corresponde pas à vos attentes. 
Il est tout à fait anormal que la selle tourne et s'avance sur les épaules. Je me permets de vous contacter en privé afin d'obtenir plus d'informations et mieux vous aider. Peut-être pourriez-vous essayer votre selle avec un autre tapis et amortisseur afin de vérifier s'ils ne participent pas à ce problème. Si la selle s'avance trop, je vous recommande d'essayer votre selle avec une croupière afin qu'elle reste à sa bonne place. Enfin, en fonction de la morphologie du cheval, certaines selles ne conviennent pas. Si tel est le cas, vous avez la possibilité de vous rendre dans votre magasin Decathlon afin de procéder à un échange ou à un remboursement (sur présentation de votre ticket de caisse). 
En vous remerciant encore pour votre retour, je vous contacte afin d'en apprendre d'avantage. 
Très cordialement.

    Great Saddle -if not faulty!

    Good value stop-gap/spare saddle for light hacking/ warm up/dreadful weather with flexible tree. Easy to clean and nice look, liked the material. Downside, tried 3. Issues -top layer of right saddle flap wrinkles up on use and then digs in knee when riding - obviously a manufacturing issue as left saddle flap didn't do it. Had this happen on two saddles. The other (3rd) saddle had stitching coming undone on first ride at front of right panel just below point of tree. Pity, as very comfy for horse and rider.
