All that and more...

Camryn here:
Wow, the peoples at Sensation Saddlery really do awesome work.  Must give pats on the back.  service was super, Kate was so nice and helpful too.  Mom ordered Jan. 25th, they had my saddle made and delivered by Feb. 23rd!  Unbelievable! 
The saddle is just "Oooo LaLa" it looks good, feels good, and smells good too!
"Is it really mine?"

"Ahhhh the smell of good leather at it's finest"

"Thanks Mom, Thanks Sensation peoples"
 
So of course I did more than just sniff and ogle my saddle.  Mom thought it was quite amazing that the Sensation peoples even arranged for decent weather to boot!  Can you even imagine, the very day my saddle arrives it's not raining, snowing OR freezing even!  That is super service.  Oh, they aren't paying me nothing to say these things either.
It feels really good on too!  Feels like it provides more stucture than my old treeless did, and boy is it made good.  Quality all the way for me Mom says. 
Mom longed me in it (just a walk on account of hard frozen/muddyness) so I'd get a feel for it.  And she could cinch it up a bit more too. 
 Cinching took some time, the leathers being new are kinda stiff, and me being soooo chunky fluffy from winter n all.  It's a way cool girth, it's hard to describe how it works, but it's self centers itself which is awesome!
Darn, were is a mirror when a gurl needs one!  "How do I look?  I feel stunning!"
Then Mom put my reins on, popped on her helmet,mounted up and we took a plod around the paddock.  Course she didn't ask for a trot cause of the ground situation.  But, besides walking, we backed, bended round trees, whoa'd off Mom's seat n stuff.  Being her hasn't ridden me since November AND I behaved so wonderful, Mom says the saddle is a success.
The saddle fits up offa my whithers real good, Mom thought my Skito pad sat down on my whithers though, her did the string test both out of and in the saddle with the string pulling right thru.  Her'll see what my trimmer thinks of how the pad sits next time she comes.  Sherry is one of the two people we know with treeless experiance.
We're hoping to putz in the paddock more as spring gets closer.

Mom LOVES, LOVES, LOVES my saddle, almost as much as her loves me I think!
