Saddle covers? Stirrups?

Is there such a thing as a saddle cover one can ride in? Since I'm giving lessons, outdoors, in Oregon, it has become apparent that I need some form of protection for my saddle. For instance, yesterday it got SO wet. And I'd really prefer if that doesn't happen on a regular basis, yknow?

Also, stirrup question: how do you fit stirrups, how do you find good ones, etc. The stirrups that came with my saddle (vintage, like the saddle so I'll be saving them, no matter what) are REALLY tiny. My feet are really small (size 6's but a little wide) and I can fit my feet into them while wearing Converse shoes, but if I try to wear my boots, they get dangerously stuck. So, I obviously need new stirrups. But how do I know what size I need and how do I find some that match my saddle?

Thanks! :)

I Love the seat of your saddle! I have never seen a cover you can ride in, however you could buy a seat saver. You can also find leather soaps that repel water. For stirrups, I like the wide trail stirrups so I don't get stuck in the winter when I'm wearing my big boots. Just measure your current stirrups and you'll be able to gauge how much wider you need. Shop around, there are all kinds of different widths and styles in western.
