Need new leathers
I was talking to the trainer the other day and told her that I had a hard time posting in my aussie saddle because I felt that my stirrup leathers weren't short enough. However, they can't go any shorter. I told her that when I stand up in the stirrups, there's hardly any space between me and the saddle. She agrees that I probably need new leathers that will go shorter.
So, where would one order new leathers for an aussie saddle? The ones on my (quality) no-name saddle were made by Syd Hill, according to our local tack shop guy who I trust. I looked on eBay, but only found one set of leathers for sale.
Also, how does one know what length leathers one needs?
On a slightly different, but slightly related topic, I need leathers for my English saddle, as well. How do I know what length leathers I need for that saddle? It's a cheap (meh) synthetic saddle, so the leathers don't have to be great, just serviceable.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
