Greetings Saddle Nation!
First of all – we’re LOVING all the pics showing love for Tethrd. It’s so cool to see you guys painting the Predator and getting some practice in before the season. And to the dozens of you reaching out to encourage us and let us know you have our backs…it means the world to us. It honestly makes a difference. Keep it up!
I thought we would have some good news for you today. However, we didn’t quite get what we were looking for from the manufacturer. We’ll shoot out another update in just a few days. To be clear, we have some good news in the hopper, but I’ve learned at this point not to put out dates and times without being certain. We’re expecting to send out a lot more saddles on Friday…what I’m holding back on is the sizes as well as some of the other accessories until I know for sure.
Finally – remember why you all decided to jump into saddle hunting. Don’t let a manufacturing delay get you off your game. All those benefits that sold you on the system: ultralight, packability, safety, comfort, versatility, etc., are still huge benefits even if you have to wait a little longer to realize them. Every single one of you will get your gear just as fast as we receive it. Due to these delays we’ve been working on plan B for our supply chain for several weeks now. Unfortunately there is no quick fix for the situation we’re in now.
Stay patient. We’ll keep you up to date with as much information as we can just as soon as humanly possible.
The next update will be in 3 days on Friday.
Ernie & Greg
