It's a keeper

After much scrutiny and watching one of my students ride in the new saddle, I decided that it indeed does fit Rose quite well. Actually, I am flabbergasted by how well it fits her. Eventually the reality that she is really that wide will soak in. I was so tickled pink to see that not only did it appear to fit her well, but after the ride she was not sore at all and there were no indications of pressure points. Yea! I can't wait to actually get to ride in it soon. Counting the days...

Clearly my baby pad does not work very well with it.

My hunt bridle shall return to the barn shortly.
 Easiest saddle shopping ever. Yea eBay!

Happy trails and swooshing tails!


  1. I know our 'girls' are of similar breeding, and Riva's new saddle is a wide. So happy you found a good fit for Rose :)

  2. Way to go eBay! Glad to hear that it fit. Great looking saddle.

  3. Yay! I'm so happy it worked out so well!
