This is not what I was posting this journal for, but AGGGHHH DA JUST DELETED MY ENTIRE STASH!!! I had important shite on there! :nuu:

Uggh... anyzuse, as some of you might remember I had a lot of saddle fitting shenanigans going on awhile ago. Got one I thought was going to work, ended up sending that one back, saddle maker recommend two others, those didn't work either, sent those back, got a treeless saddle, didn't have a pad for it and it didn't fit me, blah. I didn't want to keep 'woe is me-ing' on here since I'm sure y'all would have quickly grown tired of it, haha.
Well, after much stress and deliberation I asked myself why the frick frack not just go with a western saddle and be through with this saddle fitting nonesense... TA DA!

Look at the pretty boy with his new saddle and his haircut, mwuahaha! Saddle fit quite well off the rack... not perfect, but it never is. He seems much more comfortable in it, and it's not slipping sideways when I ride, so that's awesome. It's too far forward in this picture since I'd just thrown in on to take pictures real quick. The blanket isn't suited to it, I ordered a nicer one that I can use pretty navajo blankets over. :heart:
So... meh... I don't even know why I stressed myself out so much, there was an off the rack western saddle just up the road waiting for me this whole year, LOL.
I've gotten a matching breastplate, bridle and reins (all black everything- because it HAS to match)... the tie straps on the latigos don't match and it's driving me nuts, but that can be remedied in due time, haha. I'm planning on doing three-point/V-rigging as well, since I couldn't find a reasonably priced rear cinch and Abetta has pretty forward rigging anyway.

When I went to purchase my only criteria was that it fit him, and at least work half-way for me... definitely fits him well, it'll take some getting used to but I'm happy to be in a western again. I'm rather fond of Abetta so far. My only complaints are 1) the skirts at the back were wanting to dig into him at first, though they're quickly breaking in and I'm not concerned about it long-term 2) some of the conchos look about ready to fall off 3) the leathers utilize a funny buckle system instead of the one normally found on western leathers, It should be fine, but it's rather clunky, and it would just my luck for a stirrup to come off when I'm galavanting around the pasture LOL.

One last picture of the handsome boy mugging for the camera!
