Had a great lesson today! My trainer said my position is getting much more secure and she feels I'd do fine on Obie, regardless of whether he's in an English or western saddle.
Obie also had a great ride today (not me riding). No back humping and cantered for the first time under saddle since spring. He did great to the left, but needs a bit of work on the right lead.
I'm going to a tack swap tomorrow and bringing along three westerns to try to sell. I am going to get a quick whither tracing of Obie in the morning to take along. For now, we've been using a Big Horn that seems to fit him fairly well.
One of the girls at my barn has a nice all purpose saddle for sale. The plus side would be that I could have a trial period to make sure it fits me and Obie, but I really was hoping to buy a dressage saddle... but it's nice to have options.
