I like the look of that saddle. I hate all the light colored saddles and I hate that everyone has to keep up with the fad. I like the fact that people are smart enough to know that it is about the horse and the rider not the color of the tack. I think it is most important to have it look good on your horse, that it is clean and fits both the horse and you and you will be just fine.

That is one thing I like about the Saddlebred shows, the saddles don't change much. I have a saddle I used 20-25 years ago and it is still in style. ha ha same for the bridles too, really.

The light oil saddles have been popular in AQHA & APHA for a good 20 years, too. I mean, I bought one in 1994. Hard to call that a "fad," lol!

Actually it's a marketing ploy. Gotta keep making changes so people can have the latest. They keep piling on the metal and soon it will take two men to saddle a horse.
