    Well, I just looked and the fenders don't go down any lower. AND, the stirrups barely go short enough. Lol

    That looks like a nice saddle... I really like it... looks comfy too... now for the one on the dog... can you get a little monkey to ride the dog now? I think if you did that we could have a special on our show that would send our ratings through the roof......

    Ooo, I'm so happy for you, Mox! Looks really nice! That tiny little saddle is the cutest thing! Yeah, I agree with FP, or maybe Tilly could ride the Labraclyde.

    LOL The closest I have is Tilly, and she doesnt fit on the saddle very well, she's too long. Haha

    I am going to take the mini saddle out to the barn on Thursday and put it on Fritz (the draft) and Winston (the mastiff).

    Great find Moxie!!!

    You don't have to "tear apart" your saddle to do what Bill suggested. You want your fenders to look like the ones on seth's saddle.

    Do one side at a time so you have a reference for what they are supposed to look like. If you're super scared, you should be able to take the strap above the stirups...(looks like a tiny belt- called the Hobble strap)...off and lay it up on the seat. Now grab each side (L&R) of the fender on the fat part and pull down. The fender should just slide down...somtimes it takes some convincing but it will go. The fender and stirup leathers are usually just a big loop. Don't be scared. Adjust the fender to look like seth's does and put the hobble strap back on. You can use the other side as reference on how to put the hobble back on...it's really a 5 minute job.

    YOU CAN DO IT!!!


    You'll want to get used to how your saddle works. I find that I just do oneside at a time so I always have a way to put it back together should I get turned around or backwards!!! LOL Not that that ever happens to me. :roll:

    Bill and I have actually been PM'ing back and forth about it. I took everything off the stirrup, so I just have free moving leathers, I pulled on the fender, and it didnt budge an inch!

    Hmmmmmm... That's odd. I'm glad he's helping you with this though. Maybe you're instructor at the barn can give you a hand with it. It's hard to tell when we can't be "hands on".

    Anywho...Glad you're working on it.

    My only advice then is to get a hole punch. They're great for us short legged ladies!!! A couple more holes and voila! Perfect stirups!!!
