I think I need a new saddle esp with our coming 2yo. I've had the same saddle for the past 12 years, it fits my big fat, mutton withered gelding, but not my roached backed lean mare......omg.....some of the prices they ask for some of the nice simplest saddles gets outrageous....
Hmm I may have to look at finding a used one. It looks super comfortable.
So I had a wonderful short little stroll around bareback tonight with Lizzy. It was so hot I couldn't even think about making her work hard or me even having to put breeches on. So just jumped on for a quick walk. I was quite impressed. She has really slowed down. No fights, just a nice walk. Even lead perfectly when walking back thru the pasture. Then she got hosed down and she didn't even complain.
Anyone else have a good horsey day? Posted via Mobile Device
Yup it's essentially a very light-weight, synthetic Western with no horn. It's also available with a horn, but I prefer without. (I've been bucked on a Western saddle and got a horn to a very unpleasant place... I'm sure it didn't hurt as much as it would if I were a man, but it sure wasn't fun!)
