Update on saddle and that embarrasing question

Previously I posted a thread here asking about my saddle fitting and big butt lol well I found a saddle I really like and I think my hubby is going to buy it for me for my birthday this week, but I would really like some other oppinions. Its from an ebay store and I can actually go pick it up instead of shipping. I really like that its made for a draft and it has a 5 year guarantee on it. So heres the link and let me know what you all think, remember im a beginer lol

Aussie saddles are awesome. :) Definitely go for it.

The thing i've found with Aussies, is I have a very hard time posting a trot, those little pieces on either side of the pommel prevent my thighs from raising properly, it always smacks me back into the saddle, lol. I want to get one for my gaited horse because i'd have no need to post =)

Maybe its just me who has this problem though ^^; I love Austrailian saddles, I just wish more tack stores carried stuff for them (like fun saddle pads, etc).

The saddle itself looks very well made =) on Ebay its usually hit or miss, but that saddle looks nice!

Thank you all for the great encouragment, I think were going to go look at it tomorrow and with luck bring it home. If I do get to get it I will post pics as soon as I can get out to ride him with it. Thanks again =)

If that doesn't work out, I know somebody who has a 19" saddle for a percheron for sale. I don't know anything about western riding, but apparently this is a really nice saddle, and I think they're asking $1,200 for it. If you're interested, I'll see if I can get pictures of it. I'm in Texas, though, so I'm not sure if you'd be willing to have it shipped to you.

Haha, no problem. That's about what I spent on my horse, and I'm riding her in a free saddle, so I know what you mean. Good luck.

Ah very interesting you like the look of the stock saddle. I just hate them! How un-asutralian of me. LOL.

It is definitely harder to post trot in one as well, but very secure if you want to go trail riding etc.

I've never heard of this brand before, so is this an american company calling themselves sydney saddleworks?
