Well lately I've been having tons of problems finding a saddle that fit Sonny...the saddle would either be too small or too big. I tried on 6 western saddles that the barn owner owns...and 1 (which was the one I am selling)
Sonny seems to have an abnormally shaped body and it's making life sooo dificult. I don't want to cause him pain by riding in a saddle that doesn't fit...but then again I want to ride him cause he goes crazy if I don't ride him often. His back is too slippery (or at least seems so) to ride completely bare back...and he can be spooky so I don't want to ride bareback because of that.
I was thinking that treeless is the way to go...but most of the treeless that I've seen are really expensive. Since I'm only a part time worker, I need a saddle that is affordable, yet isn't some cheapy thing that won't last.
Can anyone help me saddle shop? I don't mind if it has a tree...but as long as there are LOTS of different tree sizes...
What I want to do:
Jumping (only occasionally...not every day)
The saddle MUST be comfortable
I don't care really what it looks like as long as it isn't a totally abnormal color (and NO pink)....must be lightweight, and perferably (if it's leather) swayed leather...but regular will work also.
Thanks all in advance!
