saddle loan

called at feed store in north of county today on way back from mother's, its' owned by former RI/YO from when i lived up there .. she happened to be there so we got chatting, as you do, and she was able to lend me a 18" jumping saddle to try on M to see how he went, wasn't that kind?  she currently has nothing that fits it so been sitting there doing nothing......

so put it on him and at first glance you'd think it might have been ok ..until i got on.  put fingers under front - squashed fingers.  got off.

TBH i wasn't arguing about getting off, it was uncomfortable and of course stirrup bars forward pulling one into a chair seat (and incipient chuff chafe!)

so, that was no test at all, really!  but it was very kind of her to lend me it.  it will be going back next saturday...

  1. Well, it was a good try. Better a failed experiment than no experiment at all.
