I'm doing some research on what exactly the two-point is (I have a good idea, but have, obviously, never done it..so this should be interesting.), and will be doing some practice bareback. Thank you sooooooooo much for the detail, it was a world of help.

I might try again tomorrow and have some pictures taken and posted and see if those are any better Love the advice you guys!! You're all so helpful
I read that you didn't understand what I meant then reread and saw that you did understand My bad, I had a huge long explanation post with pictures. Ahhhhh lol. But I just remembered all my western and bareback jumps and started going through old photos....lol. Good times.

That sounds like quite a story LOL are you serious? wonder how much shipping on that bad boy would be

If you don't mind, I might have some questions for you later on after I soak in everything and put it into practice It'd be great to have someone other than google to ask questions too. LOL

Yeah, it got hung up on a knot coming out of a tree. Lucky the saddle gave out before my leg got involved. I was able to see it coming and swung my leg over to the other side while horsey pulled against the tree pressure. I've tried hammers, smashing it against the floor, sledgehammer, etc. I cannot bend that stirrup bar back to save my life. I think it needs to be heated and then bent back into place. It wasn't an expensive saddle to begin with, so I've long since bought another one. It's pretty light weight. Probably about $30. It's an older Thorowgood T4 for high withered horses. It looks like it might fit your horse from those pics. I'll take some pics of the gullet size and repost when I get some time. Might be a few days.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Nope none at all. =) I'm no where near any high level, but I came from a pasture raised, jumping over barrels and logs in the western saddle background. I'm always willing to help where I can.
