I bought the saddle!!! Woohoo!!!
Isabella is so difficult to fit. Her withers are so high but a friend had given me a Corrector pad and once I played around with the shims, we found a combination that made the saddle fit really well. Her ears perked up and she trotted off so pretty. She didn't even try to go back to the hitching post.
The lady I bought it from used English leathers and stirrups on it so the Aussie leathers and strirrups were still in bubble wrap. She gave me the girth as well. It is prety worn but will work until I get a new one. The English style rigging will take some getting used to but OMG it is such a comfy ride.
Here is a pic. It isn't situated correctly because I had already untacked her when I remembered I wanted to take a picture so I just threw everything back up on her. I think I really got a good deal!
Oh, and Grace.....next Sunday evening will be interesting!! Will definitely be watching the game. May the best team win!
I do think the Seahawks have cooler uniforms!
Happy New Year everyone. Stan, soak up that sun for all of us!
