Cultured Cowboy is only ~an hour from me and I've bought a few things from Chuck over the years, including a Dakota saddle. He can be a little funny to deal with but I never found him to be dishonest.
I think that many times, when you see a pad on a site then order it, it may have been changed by the mfg to some degree but retain the model numbers.
Not to minimize your being upset over it, but the way I look at it is that 80 to 90% of the pad is under the saddle anyway.
When I wanted a new saddle custom made this past spring, I went to SouthernTrailsGA (a member here) and was very well satisfied. (It's the one in my avatar). Kevin has a lot of different saddles in all price ranges.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
