I bo't the saddle then told the clerk I'd like a good split ear with a throatlatch and a breastplate to match. All in all I parted with a month's wages worth of gear and never regretted it for a moment. I eventually got rid of my hubby but I still had my gear. That is why I'd love to see pics of your saddle.
Hahahaha!!! That's great... do you still have the saddle? I'd love to see a picture if you have one. Sad about the store though for sure.
I don't know much of the story behind mine to be honest, or even what 'type' of saddle it's supposed to be - when I was about 15, I grew out of the saddle I'd been using. My grandfather used to own an outfitting area and there was a shed full of saddles at the home ranch. I was lucky enough to pick out whichever one I wanted, and Dad convinced me that the Kenway was the way to go. It has obviously had some hard use, but it's held up incredibly well. I'd love to find out what year it was made and stuff.
