Excellent Tiffany -- I`ve been waiting for those pictures. The saddle looks really good on your horse. I recently got an aussie saddle as well and am glad that I did.

Thanks!
I'm glad that I went ahead and got it because this is the most comfortable saddle (except portuguese saddles) that I have ever ridden.
For trail riding, its the best.

It looks very similar to my saddle :) If it's anything like it, you will find it ridiculously comfortable. Mine feels almost like an armchair, you can sink into it and almost fall asleep. When my mother first sat in it, she couldn't get over it.

I didn't read through the thread, but I will tell you that these saddles are great for security when riding. They can make posting to the trot a little difficult/painful, but cantering in them is amazing.

My very first ride in my Aussie saddle was a three and a half hour trail ride over rocky, hilly terrain. We spent the entire three and a half hours in the saddle with no breaks. I was riding my greenbroke 2.5-year-old draft cross. When we got back, I was worried that my legs would be numb/rubbery like they are when I ride for any length of time in a western saddle. Guess what? I hopped down from that saddle and felt like I hadn't spent any time in it at all! Took the saddle of Aires and checked his sweat pattern and it fit him like a glove. I will NEVER get rid of this saddle. I might make a couple of tweaks to it (need new leathers and I want to add an overgirth to it since it is rigged western and I hate it), but it's not going anywhere. I don't care that I get funny looks and the BO makes fun of me for it.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
