After waiting two months my saddle finally arrived today. :D I can't wait to ride in it on Sunday. I got the Stabalizer Xtra in bull leather. It's the oakbark color. I was really surpised with the color. It's a reddish brown color. I was expecting a yellowy looking saddle. I am glad I didn't order the dark brown color. It would have been too dark.

Now I need to find stirrup leathers that match. I was told that County does not make stirrup leathers anymore. I want lined stirrup leathers that match the oakbark color. I was looking at the Antares stirrup leathers. Does anyone know if this would match? Any recommendations?

Thanks :)

I have the Beval flat buckle stirrups in Cognac (the lightest color):

They oil up nicely and I like them so much that I now have them on all of my saddles.

Here they are on my Oakbark Innovation:

And my lighter colored Stabilizer (which has darkened considerably over the years):
