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?
