I have been fooling around with the idea of getting one, but I just can't justify it yet. I like the looks of them. I just don't know whether it will hold up. As soon as you try it out please let me know. Also when you do see if it hurts your hips like if they stretch too much with the horse. That is the main reason I haven't bit the bullet yet. My horse is like a barrel with no withers, so I'm worried about my hips hurting without any twist in the saddle. Please let me know when you get a chance to try it out. Thanks.
