New saddle fits! YAY!!!

It's been so frustrating, having a new horse I'm itching to ride but no saddle to ride with! There's only so much you can do bareback with a new, green horse... at least, for me anyway.

Oh I love that saddle. So glad it fits, how exciting to finally be able to ride. That is exactly the saddle I've been looking for for trails. What kind is it again?

It's the Abetta Arabian Trail saddle - I got it from Chick's Saddlery online, by far the best price that I could find. Here's the link - Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com Abetta Arabian Trail Saddle without Horn

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....

poor rosie !!

Saranda - just wondering, why have you gone the bitless route ? I don't know too many people who do, but I used to compete a horse in a hackamore [adjusted to make it not so harsh !!]

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?

It's raining again...

That saddle is interesting. So is it designed like a western but without a horn and synthetic?

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!)
