My first saddle!

I also wanted to share that my saddle arrived today!!! Now the nerves set in. Will it fit?
"Seriously, when are you going to spend money on ME and not on that stupid horse?"
I am a bit concerned that the pen doesn't settle exactly in the middle. And that the saddle may be even older than I am since the flap notes that it was made in West Germany! However it has aged VERY well if so. I emailed Passier with the ID number to find out more.
"This only looks marginally edible."
But I adore the color and how it feels when I put it on the back of the couch to sit on. It's not a really cushy seat, but it encourages you to sit very straight on your seatbones without clamping you in a death grip.

I just hope I didn't make a total noob-ish mistake by succumbing to the English Tack Trader group! I knew it was a gamble but here's hoping it works out.


  1. Congrats! I got my first saddle recently too. Welcome to the club. :)

  2. Congrats! I'm sure it will work out fine. You'll know soon enough!

  3. Haha may have spoken too soon...
