Hi everyone, I need some advice on leather or fenders. I am going to order a custom made Crates endurance saddle, made by Riders Choice.
They will make it anyway I want, as it is custom made.
I am used to English leathers, and hate hard, stiff western fenders. Plus I want to add wide endurance stirrups.
The company offered to make 2" wide straight Fenders/leathers, sort of like on Australian saddles.
I need to know about the wide Aussie style leathers, what are the pros or cons, and what does anyone suggest I do...pictures of the saddles:
Should I get the western or English style, and regular english leathers about 1" thick, or 2" thick Ausie style?
I want to order it next Monday...thanks!
