    New to me saddle

    I can't believe my luck. Cold windy weather gets me looking at saddles on line. I think it's fulfilling a childhood dream of wanting a horse or pony and a saddle. I didn't know one could ride without one. It never did happen. Anyway, I started scouting ebay and a saddle starts calling to me "pick me, pick me". My good sense wound up in a scrap with non-sense and good sense won out. A few days later the auction ended. Oh well, for every door that closes..... About a week later I was back on ebay and lo and behold it's back. This time the seller will accept bids. Oh my, this is too tempting. I don't know where my good sense went, didn't leave me a note so non-sense submitted a low bid. It was accepted immediately and the seller ended the auction. The saddle arrived today and it has been barely used. It was made by the people who make Collegiates so decent medium quality. No girth or stirrups. No idea of girth size other than tubby.

    I hope it works for you. I have bought TWO saddles online and niether one will work for me. So, back online they go. Both are quality saddls but still don't work for ME.

    Only once has a saddle not worked for me. I erroneously thought I'd be fine with a 16" seat with a high cantle. Room for me and a little kid. So disappointed but managed to make a good profit when it sold.
