Thanks, tinyliny.

I saw Dave at Equine Affaire in 1999 and totally fell in love with his saddles. I like the feel of a dressage-type seat, but was doing so much riding in traffic and rocky hills, that I wanted something harder to fall out of than my Kieffer Aachen. This saddle totally fit the bill, and sat on my horse so well! Djinn loved going out. When he saw me get the saddle and bridle, he would prick his ears, trot on over... come back 15 miles later with his ears still happy and with a prance in his step. It's the kind of saddle that you totally forget about once you are riding, it's that comfy.

It is not a very well-known saddle; it is a black Rhino built by Dave Genadek of About the Horse. It is his #2 tree, and is a Reiner with a 15" seat. Here is what he says about the #2 bars:

Our number 2 bar is designed for a horse with a well sprung rib cage and a gentle
curve to the top line. We once called this our Arab bar. It has more twist and
rock than the #1 bar. (#1 is what he calls his Quarter horse bars).

Here is a link to his website:

About The Horse Home Page

And here is the saddle:

Attachment 957591

Attachment 957593.

It is an older saddle, built in November of 1999, and it weighs about 33#. I used it every time I rode, both on my Arabian and on my Percheron, and it is so comfortable you totally forget it is even there.

Anyway, I haven't sat in it since Ahab left, which was several years ago now, and it is driving DH crazy just sitting there in the living room, so... it is for sale.

PM me for contact information...
If you still have this saddle, I will buy it!

Oh, I am sorry, the saddle did sell! It went out to California, where I believe it is seeing a lot of riding! I truly did love that saddle.

How did I miss this? The saddle was already sold when you inquired, but I feel badly that I did not see this before today and so did not respond. I apologize!
