In April I'll be going to a clinic, my first multi-day clinic. I'm hoping to get some long rides in, read some books by the clinician, and outline what it is I hope to get from this experience. All in two and a half months.
But first, I have to solve a sort of embarrassing situation. Which saddle to use.
I have four saddles. Tomorrow I'm going to get them all set up on Cibolo and take some pictures to post.
There's the Circle Y Flex Tree Trail Saddle that is my husband's saddle and too big for me (17.5). But it's a lovely, well made saddle.
There's the Aussie saddle that I am selling because I can't feel my horse when I ride.
There's the pretty barrel saddle, Circle Y, but I bought it for my daughter and it's 14.5 - just a smidge too small.
Then there's my not much to look at but comfy to ride in 15" Fabtron synthetic saddle that I ride in most of the time.
I feel shallow saying this, but I don't really want to ride in my ... ugly saddle.
Silly, right? Someone talk me off the ledge here... I can't afford another saddle (at least not until I get rid of the Aussie). And it takes me forever to find a saddle.
Stop by for a picture parade tomorrow sometime...
