Nah, I'm just going to return it. I was nervous about these saddles to begin with, because they're made in Morocco, not in France where the customs are made. But, my local shop assured me they are made with the same materials and quality as the Antares customs. I worry than another one could also be poorly made and my untrained eye wouldn't notice it! I would have never known that the billet straps were attached incorrectly...
Besides, now that Zee can't jump anymore, I'm giving serious thought to switching over to dressage. Since I'm now saddleless and need to buy a new one, it's the perfect time to make the switch!!
I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
