help with aussie saddle
hello was wondering if anyone knows anything about this saddle as i need to get a new one Leather Stock Saddle W/ Horn | RIW4005 | Greenhawk

Know... as in how good it is? I haven't ever heard of Greenhawk, so I don't know it specifically. Most everyone on here says that if an Aussie saddle costs less than $1000, and has leather that looks as stiff, then it is a South American or Indian made knockoff. Not that it won't work, just that it isn't one of the $$$ ones. I have one of the knock-off ones, I am fairly certain, and it has held up well for me. Which is good, as my husband would probably divorce me if I bought a Syd Hill or the like, as is my dream. :)

i have a saddle from greenhawk and love it to bits but unfortunately i have apparently out grown a 15 inch! and i have extremely bad knees that apparently the way the aussie saddle sits you it takes the pressure off the knees.

I would think then, that if you have one from them that you like, that you should be safe getting another? It def takes pressure off, tho if I don't pay attention to *really* shorten the stirrups for my short legs (I had to make new holes!), then my legs start to ache and go numb. Good luck!
