Dude, it's fo seriously on its way.

I just need to get all of the other stuff - stirrup leathers & irons, girth, pad... ya know?

Ooooh. Speaking of that stuff.

What color of pad should I get?

^^ Thanks :)

From everything I've heard about Thorowgood saddles, it should fit Squiggy like a dream.

ARghhhh!!! You tease. You tease so bad. If it's here on Saturday at 5 - something o'clock, you won't be able to pick it up until Monday. Then fit and pics.... Ohhhhh. Are you about to just pee your pants, or what???

I hope it's fits you and horse perfectly. You've searched and waited so long.

That's not a Techniq, it's a T6. MUCH better saddle :)

Must be made specifically for the US market, then. Techniq was only available in Medium width and 17" in the UK and for a short time, around 2000-2002. It was a cheapie, in between the Griffin and Maxam ranges. It had a small nameplate on the back of the cantle.

Your saddle looks like it has the UK Thorowgood 'Whittaker Jumping' model tree and flap profile. They're quite rare over here and they've stopped making them now :)
