no I didn't think I could show in it, but I'm not going to go high level shows....only county fair shows nothing that a saddle is going to matter too much.
I can use my BOs saddle, I think, but I don't plan on showing anytime in the future so I'm not too worried at the moment.
It didn't seem that slippery, but I do have full western chaps that I can wear and I'll probably wear them tomorrow so my jeans don't scratch up the leather so in case it doesn't fit him properly or I don't like the feel I'll be able to return it
It was really comfy to sit in and it looks like it's a great saddle. I asked on yahoo answers about the saddle and everyone there said it was a great trail riding saddle so I'm really crossing my fingers....wish me luck when I try it on tomorrow
