OK, Nokota, Pix you get! It's a like new saddle. Not sure it's ever even been oiled it's so new. The woman who sold it to me bought it for her teenager who lost weight and it no longer fit. So she bought a new one and sold this one to help pay for it.
It has a lot more tooling on it that I wanted--I was looking for a very plain jane sort of saddle. At least it doesn't have any silver other than the conchos. I had hoped to avoid as much "bling" as I could--but then I got what fit. Sometimes you just gotta take what you can find.
It's a barrel saddle with minimal dee's. I've ordered dee's and chicago screws from Tandy Leather so I can add some in, as needed. I can punch right through the skirt and bolt the dee's pretty much anywhere.
I saddled up Big this morning and went up the Butte across the road for a bit then we did a loop around the property lines on our place through the not yet planted fields. Going up the Butte the saddle slipped back a bit but it might be that I didn't put it on far enough forwardward so it started back and only moved a little. Before I get too excited I'll try it again a few times.
Big seemed comfortable in the saddle and I was comfortable, too, so I think it'll work out fine.
There is one, fairly minor, aesthetic issue. I'll leave it to the forum members to see if they can tell what it might be.
