I could've swore it was a dark leather..but nope, it's black, clear as day now, haha. I'm excited to go get the Blevins buckles and the strap replaced, ordering silver conchos for the 6 spots and putting new leather strips on the back two, getting some black stirrups, and getting a tack set to go with it. I've already decided on hunter green. :p
But, without further ado:
Also, excuse the garbage can stand. I don't have a saddle rack yet (use the one at the barn for my other saddle) and it's been sitting in my garage on a plastic bin.
I have yet to go over the metal and clean that up, but I'll get to that when I'm not dripping sweat (it's still winter, mind you!).
Also..Any idea what kind of saddle it is?
It looks like a decent quality saddle, but there's no makers mark on it anywhere I can see.
