I'm with a couple of the previous posters. My husband thought I had a saddle problem but I really think he needs to see this thread. LOL! I do love saddles though and would love to have a collection like some women have shoes in their closet. Most of my saddles are actually quite new to me because I lost all my tack in a barn fire last fall. Sadly I lost a western saddle that I rode in when I was just 13 years old and I'm 39 now. I also lost a true German made Stubben Siegfried that was given to me after it was found in someone's garden shed. They had no idea what they had. My husband had a really nice Australian saddle which we haven't replaced yet. BUT...I've been shopping that's for sure. I'm very happy with my recent finds.

This is my first true barrel saddle. For years I've been riding barrels in hand me downs because I could never afford a true barrel saddle. When I first sat in this one, I was amazed. It's a Tex Tan Speedracer.

I bought this one as a second barrel saddle so I could saddle both my western rides at the same time. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on it and really didn't. It's a Rider's Choice off Ebay but man, I really LIKE this saddle. Definitely recommend them if you want an affordable US made saddle.

This is a Simco trail saddle. Super comfortable.

And yes, I had to get me another Stubben Siegfried. I'm hooked. Got this one used off Ebay. It's made in Switzerland so newer than the one I lost made in Germany but I got it for a good price. If I had to choose though, I'd pick my old made in Germany one.

OK, so I'm an Ebay junkie. I happened to come across this one for a nice deal and hubby actually said yes so I swiped it. It's a Crosby dressage saddle. Older but an amazing ride. It actually fits me better than the Stubben and I only paid 299 for it.

And this is my little piece of history. It was in the same shed as the Stubben that someone gave me. They thought it was an old pack saddle and said take it or we'll throw it away. Turns out it's a 1917 McClellan. It's not in super shape but I cleaned it up and its now a conversation piece in my living room.
