I will definitely keep that in mind. However, as far as my budget goes, this saddle fits in nicely right now. If I bought one of the newer saddles, I'd have to wait a month or two. I can swing this one right now with my tax money.
I will keep my eyes open for you guys. Like I said, these rich people don't know what they want. It's ridiculous. I find nice quality western stuff tossed in the back of a pile and priced for nothing because they don't know/care about western. I'm loving it.
I will have to buy a new girth though as well as the shims as a regular dressage girth doesn't have wide enough buckles to work on this saddle well.
In either case, I'm going to be buying the saddle I think. Either for me or as a resale, but probably I will be keeping it.
Thanks guys!! I'm really stoked. FINALLY something is working right these days. LOL. Last year was a crap chute and a half. 2013 is looking up.
