Stick to logs and ditches!

When I first saw these, it seemed they were the best thing
since sliced bread. When I actually got one, I discovered
several problems ...

First...it is very heavy and makes the saddle uneven
and unwieldy weight-wise.

Second...it's a nifty contraption but if you are short-legged
(my inseam is 28"), you won't be able to get your right leg
over your horse's hip on the over-swing!

Third...you may need to have extra holes put into your fender
to accomodate a little extra length from the EZ-up when it is installed.

My recommendation...forget the gizmo and buy a shorter horse!
