My new trail saddle arrived!

I will be stylin' on The Biscuit Man in a new Alleghany Trail Saddle! I ordered it for him 2 months ago and it arrived today. It is so very pretty!!!

Lots of latigo's, super padded seat, a hoof pick case with my initials on it. Seems to be comfy.

It sits me up straighter than my aussie so I will have to get used to that. Anywhoo...I just wanted to show it off to my trail buddies

congrats! Can't wait to hear about your first ride in it.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Well...I am working on all of that. It didn't come with a girth and the rigging is low on both sides. ALL of the girths I tried didn't come close to fitting. LeAnn (Barn Manager) and I got the shortest one we could find and rigged it with a 3 point rigging. The girth is still too big!! LOL I took it to the local store and bought I kid you not...a pony looking girth but also got some cinch guards because I figured it would be uncomfy for The Biscuit Man. I took one crappy picture in it yesterday with me on it...not showing that one but check this one out of The Biscuit Man.

Nice looking saddle! And a good looking horse to boot! Congrats :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I like the Jeremiah Watt concho. Nice personalized pouch.

Thanks Ray! I'll pass that along to The Biscuit Man. He likes hearing how cute he is.

I loved the concho's and all of the hardware on this saddle. It is stainless steel which is nice for me. The little hoof pick pouch has the little folding hoof pick in it! How cute is that?

LeAnn and I worked on adjusting the stirrups to the right length today. I rode around the arena a few times and so did LeAnne. Biscuit seemed a little excited but he is that way in an arena. Outside of the arena he is quiet! I will be riding in it Saturday at Tyrrell Park and will try to ride as often as I can this week before we go on our "Girl's Trip" to McKinney Roughs next week. I am going to take both of my saddles just in case!! It rides very similar to my Billy Cook trail saddle and I really liked my BC...but I am so used to my Aussie now it felt different so I will just have to get used to this one!!!
