Wanted to say thank you for the saddle advice. My new saddle arrived so here is a photo. I should have groomed him first, he 's straight out of the field. But hay I was excited about seeing it it fit and how it looked.
Had a sit in my new saddle and walked a few steps. It sounds like a pair of really squeaky shoes.
It's hung with a pole in my living room to try and sort out the fenders and I put a load of leather conditioner on.
I'm going to place it in my bedroom tonight to see if I get a reaction out of my husband.
It's a dakota pleasure saddle.
Got it off the clearance section of horsesaddleshop.com
My boy has lost so much muscle, as I could not ride him in other saddle coz it was way to big and also we have had really bad weather here, no light coz it's winter.
I'm really looking forward to getting out on him now, and getting back into the shape he was three months ago.
