    Im confused then, why would the buckle on your current leathers have anythign to do with webbers ? Don't the webbers replace your leathers.?
    I don't like the Aussi rigging, and I didnt have a saddle that really fit Emma, Both my aussies need new billets but can't really see a decent way to do it and any one you ask immediately turns their nose up at an Australian saddle. I guess they figure since they once saw a cheap hunko junk $100 aussi, they know all about them.
    The Trailmaster I have been using on Emma is getting some wear issues, I went back and forth between a down under Long rider, tucker or Circle y gaiter. Went tucker because I could put my hand on it. And not have to mail order.

    I'm sorry. Maybe we're not even talking about the same thing.
    I have webbers that go with a Wintec dressage saddle. They slip onto a bar and are so easy to adjust or remove as there is no buckle...just a loop at the top that fits on the bar under the flap. The leathers I use for the Tucker Plantation slip thru a ring way up on the tree and it is not easy to get to to reattach the leathers to the saddle if they need to be removed.

    Please feel free to ingore any previous post if it does not apply as I am old and easily confused. : ) That's my excuse for everything. It seems to be working so far.

    Well I put the as delivered endurance stirrups on and rode in some Danner light hot weather hikers,,, and of couse Emma stepped on my toe. My foot didnt move around at all, SO I guess going with agressive tred shoes with the smoother stirrups is having same net effect as smooth shoes with cheese grater stirrups. I guess I could always rivet the graters to the endurance stirups. Text book wise stirrups are fine now, the endurance stirrups being 3/4 or so taller helped. I also still have room for one more hole in the leathers. And could go with a thinner stirrup bar. But with the grippy hikers all is well tred wise. Now going to order a similar shoe in waterproof and carbon fiber safety toe..... SO do I buy now or wait till July and let the state buy ? Hummmmmmm

    Joe, you need a whole variety of colors to match your riding pants. Maybe you should go ahead and buy several pairs just to be sure.

    I know absolutely nothing about endurance riding except what I have read through the years in magazines, so pleave forgive the questions. This saddle is an Aussie saddle designed for endurance or a saddle totally dedicated to endurance?
