New saddle!

I finally got my new saddle about 20 minutes ago. It's 14" Corriente barrel saddle that was made just for me because they didn't have what I wanted in stock. I feel so special. I will have to take some more pictures tomorrow with Abby wearing it too.

Rainbow stitched seat!

Squeee!!! Looks amazing. Don't forget to set your stirrups though. They'll be much more comfortable that way.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Wow-I really like it. Congrats!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks, guys! I'm super excited and I'm sure Abby will get over her initial "Oh dear lord, what is this now?" reaction when she realizes it'll fit her better. My living room also smells like new leather now. Not mad about that at all.

That was my first thought actually when I was looking it over. On my other saddle, I used the wetting and flipping the buckle around trick, but I don't want to with this one. I wonder if the people whose tack is next to mine will let me borrow the mini log thing they used to set theirs.
