    Yes but only because of what I see on your form. I certainly would try it on my horse before committing to it if possible.

    As for Aussie saddles, they are great. I used to have one many years ago that I got from the Downunder Saddle Co. I got one without the horn and used it for everything. I'm just a Western kind of guy so I went back to my "roots" and sold the saddle a few years ago.

    Yeah, I haven't had a horn on a saddle since my barrel saddle (which has been several years) and I rode in the western one I just borrowed from my mom a little around our property and the horn drove me nuts! I really think I want to go with an aussie again, but I've been looking at Crest Ridge saddles, too. Do you know anything about them?

    You can read a lot of reviews on I love that website. I don't know anything about them. I don't know if I will ever go back to a Western. My Aussie is a cheap one, but some day I'd like to get a nice one. We got lost one day and after a five hour trail ride, the last hour mainly trotting, I felt great! No sore knees or butt, and my husband's butt was sore, and he has a pad on his seat. I don't think Aussies are necessarily the prettiest saddles, but they are comfy. I also dislike horns. People that don't ride get so amazed that there is no horn. "What do you hang onto?" Hello, you balance, you don't ride with a grip on the horn all day. People jump huge fences in less saddle than what I have. Ok, enough rambling. At least I bumped you back up.

    Thanks so much Cloudy! I'll check out that site. Having three kids I can't justify spending $1000 or more on a saddle, but I'm going to go for the best quality I can get that my budget allows. :)
