    Where did you get that sheepskin cover?

    So sorry! I have been so busy and yesterday I thought to myself, " Hey! I need to share Dare's 1st completion with everyone. Haha!

    I have had it for about 8 years and I think I got it from the BM website. It used to cover all the way down but after 8 years it is finally getting a little worn out.

    I have 2 Marciante endurance saddles, plus a Black Forest Town and Country treeless.

    One of the Marciantes is a traditional endurance saddle that my folks had Frank make for me over 20 years ago (for my previous horse). Love that saddle. Picked up my newest one used on eBay earlier this year. More of a dressage style (had never seen another Marciante like it and date it to a little older than my other saddle, based on the serial number) but OMG is it a super comfy and secure saddle for hours on the trail! Those saddles were built to last, for sure!

    I ride in a GenII tucker endurance saddle. I love it. I have had it for five yrs and I ride daily and out on the trails most weekends, and camping for long rides once a month. It is not too heavy and the comfort of the seat is amazing. I do ride a TWH and it works great for their higher withers.

    I have a SS Eurolight as well. The newer models have a more comfy seat than the old ones. I post all the time on mine. You can move the leathers-stirrup to suit your anatomy. I use English narrow leathers. I have two sets of pads/shims to fit two very different horses.

    I also use a lot an AP Sylvan (arabian saddle company) that I just love, my favorite.

    I use a treeless Barefoot in training rides, but not on long ones. My horses both love that saddle, but it bothers my hips after a while. (wide twist)

    I forgot to mention what I like about my saddles (which I guess was the point of the thread, huh? ).

    Both my Marciantes have adjustable rigging, free hanging stirrups (western fenders on one, nylon "leathers" on the other) to allow for freedom of movement on trail, provide for a very balanced (padded) seat, are lightweight and made extremely well. I wish they were still making them...

    I like my treeless for comfort for both myself and my horse and the close contact it provides.

    I have a Bob Marshall, an Ortho- Flex Express Lite, and a really old Billy Cook.

    I like that the Ortho-Flex and the Bob Marshall are both very lightweight. I also like the fact that I can use them both on different horses with different builds. They both seem to keep their re-sale value, which is also a plus.

    I love my Billy Cook, but I wish it wasn't quite so heavy. I do feel that it provides a little more security, but that could be because it's a Western style saddle and my other 2 are endurance saddles.
