My new ride...
Posted 14 July 2009 - 02:17 PM
I knew I would do something but didn't have any idea how it would turn out since it would be all put together. It has turned out MUCH better than I imagined and I am very proud of it.
It has taken me a few days to get photos of it and I did want to show it to them before I posted photos of it. We went today to pick up my daughters saddle and I carried mine back with us.
So here are the photos. So tell me what you think.

May I ask why you went with this type of saddle?
because the saddle I had was digging into my mares back in front of her hips and preventing her from striding out from behind. When I discovered the problem I was riding in a different kind of treeless saddle I had for a rescue horse that was extremely narrow. This saddle was so universal that I could put it on anyone so I had thrown it up on Bonnie. She immediately began to work like she has already been warmed up.
After further investigation it was discovered that my old standard saddle was hampering her movement. So I was going to have to buy another saddle and instead trying a jillion different saddles I went with one that I knew would work for whoever I wanted to use it on.

Kevin, apparently I do not understand. What about the saddle would cause then to be shy?
Here are a couple of pictures when I had it in the shop working on it.
