Okay - so remember the saddle I took a HUGE chance with and bought off of E-bay? I was worried that it might not be a 'real' Champion and Wilton, but it was!...
...I was worried that it might not fit me, but it DOES!...
..and lastly, I was worried it might not fit my horse, but it DOES!!!After what seemed to be a million interruptions of my life, I was finally able to get Chastain and the sidesaddle over to my trainers, to get her opinion. In her words, "Julie, this sidesaddle looks like it was made for Chastain!!!" It is overstuffed, which compensates for his dropped back. It sits perfectly flat on him and it does not pinch him!
I have been holding off on buying a girth, a balance strap and the very expensive Impact saddle pad. Now I can go forward with these other purchases and start to take lessons on him! Yippie!!!
I received this Friendship award today:
..from A Good Horse. It is my very first award for this blog! Thanks!
