The Prodigal CWD Returns!

The panels were made, I shipped the CWD to a Burbank address, and a week later it ships home complete!
A little shocked- I thought that in addition to the panels being made in France that the saddle was also shipped there to be assembled. In fact I questioned the poor CWD customer service gal heartily about who exactly put those panels on when she made the mistake of calling to confirm my address.

Apparently local CA saddle repair people who trained under the CWD masters in France. And for all you East Coasters there's a saddle repair center in NY.

So now we'll just have to wait and see if Princess Ellie likes her new panels. It feels very "Princess and the Pea"- esque.

  4. My best friend is a CWD rep/fitter, so if you ever need inside info let me know! I can confirm that they send them all to France for 3 weeks of saddle fitting training, it's super intense but very cool. I am a couple of months away from getting my first CWD and I could not be more excited!
