Talking TA-DA! Nelson's new saddle :)

I am soooo in love with this saddle LOVE IT!!



It is a Harry Dabbs Origional Event, in excellant condition. Padded Knee's with Knee blocks, padded seat and ooooober comfortable! I don't want to get out of it when I get into it.

My position is so easily achieved in this saddle as well! I can get into my functional two point with ease without having to struggle, unlike with my Wintec 500 A/P. There's so much positive about this saddle, I'm just in love

I have to get matching accessories for it though, right now I am using all my black stuff with the saddle. I have to use a thick 1/2 pad as well, Nelson's topline is very .... well, non existant right now since the injury in January. The saddle is a Medium/Wide so I've had to put shims in my corrective 1/2 pad to rise the pommel up. When Nelson fills out, the saddle will fit him wonderfully.

I just love everything about this saddle. The panels, the angle of the panels, the width of the gullet and the list goes on!

Here it is:

Nelson has an extremely masculine pink saddleblanket

Eventing, the sport where you strap your medical information to your arm.

LOL guys! That's not pink!!!! It's Raspberry! Get it right eh!! LOL....besides, real men wear pink *wink*

I have my lesson today, I am oober excited about my Coach seeing me in her old saddle :)

I really need to get a saddle bag/carrier for it. It sucks packing my saddle around bare back and forth from the barn. I would leave it at the barn, but I have nothing to protect it, and I don't want it getting covered in dust or sat on by a barn cat or bumped or knocked by another boarder while they are getting their tack together.

Before I didn't care, it was a Wintec - but now...LOL.

Thanks Upnover :) :) I am so thrilled!

I had my first lesson in this saddle today and I just can't stop oogling it and ooing and awwing over it. My Coach thinks it a smidge too small on me, but I feel snug as a bug in a rug in it.

I tried an 18" and it's too big. I don't feel secure in it, there is too much room. I can't feel secure in an 18" no matter how hard I try. Too loose, I feel floppy in it.

The 17.5" I feel just right.

My two point is so solid! My Coach was very impressed with where my form was today, compared to before in my Wintec.

I love this saddle!
