western saddle hunting....arg
well at first I was thinking of getting a Fabtron...but that would take too much money out of my pocket...money I need for vet bills, board, and farrier.
Next I was thinking of buying one of the barn owners western saddles that fit Sonny well and was the right size for me, but I've realized that the one stirrup if all weird (no I can't fix it...I've tried), and also for long rides it gets sort of uncomfortable.
So at the moment I'm western saddle hunting.
Anyone have any particular brands that they like?
My requirements are:
the saddle MUST MUST MUST MUST be light weight
Synthetic if possible, but it doesn't really matter
no weird colors...brown or black only
I saw one at a local tack shop that was on sale for $395. It was the right size for me...don't know how it would be on Sonny though....it was synthetic....with silver (well probably not real silver) accents.
I'm hoping to try that one on Sonny and that it fits. It's a good looking saddle, good price, and fairly light weight.
