    That's what I was thinking, Chevaux. I need to find out how long it's been there. I got my Aussie saddle for half what they were asking because it'd been sitting there for so long.

    That's a nice saddle, a plus that you can see, feel it & sit in it. I do hope you get your Aussie saddle back soon.

    I think this saddle would look amazing with that blanket that I linked to a few posts ago. Gotta find out how much they are and how to get one...

    LOVE the saddle and fingers crossed it fits! I found Circle Y's to be narrow on my draft cross, but I am hoping for the best on this one for you!

    The Yucca flats blankets are pricey. They run between $225 and $275 each, depending on the dealer. You can occasionally find them on eBay, in fact, there was a dealer recently in Washington State selling them for quite a bit less....I will try and look back and see who it was-maybe they can get you the one you want for less. They are extremely heavy and thick-made to wear forever. There are sometimes ones that look really similar but are less at some of the tack places-it just takes looking. I love the multicolor ones myself, but can understand how it might be busy on your guy.

    Will let you know what I find for you-

    Here is the eBay listing for the less pricey Yucca Flats blankets......you can message the seller and ask them about the one you want and how much. I know they are new dealers..........Good luck! If you can get it for $175 that is a total bargain!

    Maybe another possibility?- 2 choices......

    I also have this one in the black background. I think it is really similar to the Yucca, but MUCH more affordable. I used it last show season.......got lots of compliments. I also think this is more the color you had in mind.....

    I actually really like both of those blankets, franknbeans! Especially the first one in turquoise/blue/sand. Now, something like that would go over a plain black wool pad, yes?

    Also just realized that this saddle will more than likely fit my boyfriend, too, so when we get him a horse, he can use it too!

    Perfect! And yes-I use mine over a 3/4 inch felt. You probably do not need that thick though.

    I'll have to check the felt pad that's on consignment at the same place the saddle is at.

    Now that I know what I like, I'm also going to check the local tack places for blankets.
