Yep! And considering I needed to use a tush cush on my last two Western saddles, that is saying something good (that I haven't had to on the Eldorado).

Thanks for the kind words on the brown. The leather seems to be more of an oxblood color and I really like the contrast with the black seat. I love the black on your black horse. My last saddle was black and I liked that a lot on Chuck, but wanted to do something a bit different this time around.

Today, I was able to get out on Chuck for about 1.5 hours and I really like my position while in this saddle. I was riding with a friend the other day and she commented that I seem have a better (straighter) alignment from shoulder to hip to heel.

I have yet to do any trotting as our horse's girth galls are just healed and on top of that we're in the low to mid 90's temp-wise, so I'm just walking him. He seems to be very comfortable moving in this saddle. I expected for both of us to have an adjustment period, but so far that isn't the case.

I've noticed that the latigo's that come with the saddle are really long. I would typically switch out to leather, but the saddle fitter suggested I try these as they are less bulky. Since she manages a saddle/tack/feed store, she could have easily sold me extra tack and I trust her recommendations related to Chuck.

If anybody is looking for a video about tacking up either 7/8 or using the rear angled d, below are two from Julie Goodnight that helped me.

FYI: With the 7/8's rigging, I tried alternating front and second saddle d-rings until I used up a lot of the latigo. After going with Julie's recommendations about double looping through the first d-ring and then going to the second, I was more comfortable.

This first vid is good if you are using the rear angled d:
This second vid is longer and isn't as dark: Julie Goodnight teaches about Different Saddle Riggings and Saddling - YouTube
