I own several sets of chaps but mostly brush chaps, I have been considering buying a good set of leather chaps so that may help. I guess I really don't want to ruin this saddle in my haste to ride in it. It took me some time to get used to it the first time so I guess it should make sense that it will take me a minute to get used to it again especially on a different steed. I will hold off on "roughing" it for a little bit and just get back to riding in it, but I do appreciate all of the replies and suggestions.

With these you get a good functional bit with a semi custom look without the custom price. Someday I want a nice custom silver bit with a mona lisa mouth or half breed mouth piece. Maybe someday I'll even be good enough for a spade but I'm not so sure.

I think you mean Saddle Tite. I used it in bigger jumping classes and it helped.

How about a suede seat saver. I have heard good things about this one and I am considering adding it to my trail saddle. I normally just ride in a full seat breeches.

There used to be a product called "Saddle Tite" but I havent seen it in a long time and do not recall who made/makes it. Is it a suede seat. Some suede cleaners will help bring the nap back up but once suede has gone "slick" its hard to near impossible to replenish the nap. You can always buy a seat cover of your choice. If you feel like speding a little money (will pay off in the long run) the above mentioned suede covers work well.. I made a seat cover (not pretty but worked) out of an old pair of chaps I had to fit an old english cutback I had to ride short trails in. "sigh" ......I wish I never sold that saddle.
