OMG - we just got back from our trail ride and it was a BLAST and the saddle was uber comfortable. It will take some getting used to the stirrups because they are not stirrup irons like I had on my Aussie. The seat is just as comfortable as my Aussie - I did notice the times I got off of it in sunlight the seat was pretty warm when I got back on!!!
My cousin thought it was beautiful and I love the feel of the leather. It was easy on my bones. I adjusted to the sitting up super straight quickly as my other western saddle had done the same.
Best of all, I got off near the end of the ride to clean Bisckies hooves and it was in a flat area. My cousin's hubby said to just try. I did and WOW WEE - I was in the saddle. My Aussie ALWAYS slipped when I tried to mount from the ground. My cousin said "did you just get in the saddle? Do it again...let me see". I hopped off and got back on. I did it again at the trailer. That is wonderful. I haven't been able to do that in my Aussie!!
I took the saddle off and Biscuit was wet all over - no dry spots!!! All in all, I am thrilled!
