I just wanted to mention, as a side note. Aussie saddles (well made ones) are great for a lot of hours in the saddle and you can't beat 'em for comfort (unless you go for a Tucker!) but they don't suit all horses well. I rode my QH in one for years and loved it, but had to sell it when I got my draft crosses. You need a good set of withers or they get a bit unstable.
