I forgot to tell you guys :D

Leaving Facebook... | Facebook

I BOUGHT THIS SADDLE!
Im so excited, its already on its way. I love it! Its exactly what Ive been looking for. I cant wait until it gets here, only a few more days to wait What do you guys think of it? I so excited for it to get here. The next things on my list of tack needed: Back cinch, lime green saddle pad, and some lime green front bell boots.

AND! Savhanna is going into training for September I decided. Me and my boss couldnt put the effort into doing it this summer.

And may aswell give an update on the parade I was in... Uh oh.. how did I italics my letters? I pressed something on my keyboard!.. crap... anyways! it was good! I rode mattie instead of Doc.. shes a phsyco. kepts turning around and freaking out. then after the aprade I went back to fort macleod, and rode her only one in a ride. She has a major bucking problem, and I was missing a stirrup rubber (the things in the foot of the stirrup) and well... I cam off, and landed on my wrist and buggered it, but like before I cowboyed up, finished the ride, but I didnt do the last one cause I couldnt hold the lance. So I wrapped it, and its helping a bit. It feels better today, so Ima try without the wrap.

LONG WEEK! lol

Anyone know how to fix the italics?? I have no idea what I pressed on my keyboard.. its wierding me out lol

I'm sorry to be the one to break the news to you, but ... I don't think that saddle is well-made. Please have a saddler check over it before you put it on a horse :)

I have to agree, sorry.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thats a very pretty saddle. Hopefully it is made better than the price would indicate. If your not going to use it very often it should last some time. One problem with that type of saddle is they don't wear well and break down easily. Keep an eye on the tree and riggings.
It will look really cute with lime green accessories

These saddles are notorious for having things wrong with them, some ship out with broken trees and the whole nine yards. Please do a thorough check of it to make sure there are no staples, nails or anything else sticking out and that the tree is intact.

No more than you are paying for the saddle, you won't get burned too badly if it doesn't last very long. As long as it fits you and your horse without hurting either of you, enjoy it! It sure is pretty!

Well I rode in it today, it definitly doesnt fit Alice, but it wasnt bought for her anyways. Its soo comfortable and tough. It fell off her 3 times (I was trying to get her to carry it back to the barn after the ride lol) Its definitly for a wide horse, so it will for sure fit Savhanna when shes broke :)

And PS, Alice is 3 years old anf had only about 15 rides, and she hadnt been ridden since July, and I took her for a trail ride along the road. Didnt freak out once! What an amazing baby :)
