So, when I first got Dozer (3.5 years ago!) I rode him in a treeless saddle I had gotten from my cousin. I totally loved it! It always felt like I was bareback with a little extra support just incase.
Anyways, about a year ago, the billet strap snapped DURING A GYMKHANA EVENT and that saddle could no longer be used.
I was stuck in an Aussie saddle that I hated. I didn't feel connected to the horse.
So, after months of complaining and saving up my money, I finally got a new treeless! It's the same brand as the one I had before, just new and prettier. It's also a small reminder of my pony, Bart, who passed away June 1st. The conchos on his bridle were the same as the star ones on this saddle. :)
I opened the box, snapped a quick picture, and hauled it up to the backyard to put it on Doz. I tried cleaning him off so he would look less brown and more white but that didn't really happen so...
Here are the only two pictures I've got of it and the picture of Doz running/ jumping in the event with the broken billet strap!
Sorry for the small amount of pictures... I'll get more soon! Maybe even with me riding in it if I find someone wanting to take pictures for me!
