Buying Leather Again
Since Thanksgiving, I've had a secret. I've been saddle shopping again because my Stateline saddle just wasn't cutting it well enough. It was just the tiniest bit too narrow and was causing some muscle atrophy behind Lady's shoulders.
Thankfully, I was actually able to sell the Stateline quickly, and I found a really pretty older Kieffer AP saddle to buy. It came in the post on Friday and I'm already liking it a lot. It's more old-fashioned looking than some saddles, and it has a nice deeper seat.
I'll have to mess with the fit of it some more, but the best news is that it is wide enough for Lady. I may even have to add some padding up near the gullet, which is something I've never had to do! Doesn't she look happy?
This Kieffer has been well used, but it has also been well loved. I've gotten a great deal on what looks to be a very good saddle.
