Too true! When I sold my western gear & was cohearsed (by the tack store staff) into selling my old saddles & keeping my new saddle because "it was so much lighter & new"!de_Stille_een said:The western saddles I was raised with are just plain uncomfortable. And if you've ever ridden in a low-end western, you know that it's like sitting on a rock. A rock that rubs and chaffes, at that.
