    Ha, he doesn't have ANY extra padding. No matter how much he eats. Skinny as a rail.

    I just remind myself that he's WAY more wrinkly than I am. Good reminder of the importance of wearing sunscreen!

    I do ride western right now. Well I have a western saddle anyways. Trained english, so I'm trying to figure out what the real differences are (besides the whole, neck rein, direct rein issue). That's a whole nother thread though! Thanks for the help guys.
    Have you had anyone out to look at him?

    We have a saddle fitter come to the barn every other year. Checks the fit on anyone who would like him to. His goal is not to sell you a custom saddle, but to help you find what works.

    He sure knows his stuff!

    No I haven't.

    Do you have the guys number? Where is he based? I would love to have him come out and take a look.

    I was just thinking that I need to find someone who actually fits saddles. Thanks

    Give Kevin (SouthernTrailsGA) a call. Let him walk you through the process, it really isn't rocket science - you can do it. I am fortunate enough that he isn't that far from me and I was able to pick up a lot of tips when he looked at a saddle that I intended for my new mare - kept the mare, sold the saddle.
