Thanks, I have to wait for a girth to be shipped :( so I won't get to try it for about another week.
I think with my new hobby of what else but tack hoarding, I will buy western stirrups for winter so my winter boots don't get stuck like in my english stirrups, use the 4 bar sometimes and I can always throw my other leathers on as well. I ride with barely my toe in the stirrups so the wide stirrup might annoy me, we will see.
And I think I will like the straight leg. Western saddles hurt my knees like no other, no freedom of movement.
