I ended up buying the saddle from my friend and now that I have put holes in so that the stirrups are at the exact right length I can say I LOVE this saddle. The only things I will be looking for come spring is some english leathers and irons instead of the western stirrups and the aussie leathers that came with the saddle. That will make the saddle much more versatile as far as other riders.

I have only seen the Aussie saddle on tv and it seems to be the best of both worlds. I find your comments interesting.

That's really exciting! I'm going saddle shopping on Saturday... Its scary.

Crazy people don't really loose their mind, it just becomes something more entertaining!

Truth is a mass appeal to something.

I am borrowing an Aussie saddle from a friend to see if I like it or not. I can say that my mare likes the Aussie better than my western - it just seems to fit her better. One thing I never knew - you actually SIT different in an Aussie saddle... 40 years of riding one particular way and now I have to learn a new way to ride... This is going to be interesting to say the least! LOL I plan on going out to ride this afternoon and seeing if I can get the hang of that saddle. I am also going to have to make sure I use the breast collar as I ride with a loose saddle (habit - and my horse likes it better) and this saddle is harder for me to get into... emoticon
