I LOVE my hard-seat Aussie saddle. The seat isn't what I'd call exactly "hard" (at least not like a hard seat western is), but it's not padded like most Aussie saddles I've seen or tried.
On the other hand, my friend's Circle Y saddle with about 4" of padding on the seat (okay, I exaggerate...there's only about 2" of padding...seriously) leaves bruises on my butt bones. But then again, so has ANY western saddle I've ever ridden, whether it's hard or padded.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
