English riding... I miss yooou.

I got to borrow an english saddle from a friend for a few months, but gave it back a few weeks ago. *devastated* I'm trying to find a used saddle... but I have no luck. I really enjoyed trying something different... and I can't wait for the day when I can do it again!

Just had to get that out...

^^ First time ever sitting in an English saddle. EVER. Horrid, right?

First Jump ^^ Stirrups are too long! D:

Haha I miss it too.. you came so far in such a short time!

Time to start saving for an English saddle, or swap one of the westerns you guys don't use (is there such a thing?!) for an English.

You'll get to try it again sometime! Maybe in the future you can hop on Sky and try it haha

She is in the prairies, flat as a pancake. Off topic but...if your dog runs away in Saskatchewan, you can see him running away for days!

Ware's is right :P

"Saskabush is pretty, yep, she's pretty flat." - Hurtin Albertan, Corb Lund.

We sold the only western saddle that doesn't get used, and I just bought a barrel racing saddle! I'll have to save the next few paychecks and get me a saddle and bridle and all the goodies!

I think Squiggy would love to pop over some crossrails...maybe if I get enough courage to try it bareback on her...

Keep Looking!! There are still folks who need to sell stuff in this crummy economy **CORPORAL grumbles**, and I'm sure that a good fitting English saddle is out there for you. =D
