Australian Saddle Experiences.
Have you guys ever owned an Aussie saddle and what were your experiences with it?
I bought one six months ago because it looked absolutely beautiful online, but I have been very disappointed with it. I have been training my young horse and he has tendencies to get a little out of control and I thought the poleys would be bigger and secure me more into my seat but they are very small [stick out like one inch] and if I hit them it is actually painful.
On top of this, I was told that aussies were great for thick horses and it hardly fits my appy.
I love how the saddle looks though, it is so pretty, I almost don't want to get rid of it just so I can look at it from time to time, haha.
What do you guys think?
