So, about the saddle...Mom took and sent pictures of my back to Nickers Saddlery so they could see if they felt the saddle we wanted would work for me. Got the thumbs up on that. More emails, then phone calls about my needs, Mom's wants, sizing, colors, foam....You know all that boring stuff...
Once all that stuff had been decided, Kate at Nickers had picture of the saddle we want in the colors Mom chose and sent it us. WOW, am I gonna be a fashionista or what. Comfort and style to boot. Those geldings I ride with are gonna be like "Humma, humma Camryn you be lookin good". With my golden color, my burgandy Skito and this saddle, those boys won't know what hit em! I asked Mom to print the picture to hang in my room to dream over. I/we have never had a brand spanking new saddle that we actually got to choose the features in. It's built for my comfort and Mom's too, that's the best of both worlds. Mom told me bout the poron foam seat that will minimize her bounce at a sitting trot, something we'll both appreciate big time!
I'm so excited I can't wipe the smile offa my face!
Gotta give kudos to Dad for saying "YES". "Thanx bunches Dad you're the best non-horsey Dad a gurl could ask for." And kudos to Nickers Saddlery too, we've heard soooo much good about their treeless saddles. Mom's been drooling for one for like ever. When Mom was researching she'd print stuff up, one thing she'd printed from their site showed a slightly differant price than on another page. Mom noticed and pointed it out, of course they corrected the misprint right away BUT, they also gave Mom the saddle for the slightly lower price she'd found. Now, that's exceptional I'm thinking.
