    If you're looking at a new Thornhill and decide on one, think about buying it in Canada. I just looked at the prices and you'd save a lot of money because your dollar is so high right now. Anyhow, if...

    Thanks for all your comments.
    Jay, it is a Keiffer and will be done on one of their machines by an experienced saddler, so I feel pretty confident about that. Do they still take the panels off for...

    Draftmare...do you have a snipe on the saddle you want on EBay? Unless you do, you won't win it if other people are bidding because I'll guarantee you someone out there has a snipe on it.

    I have the Ariat Monaco half chaps and they have stood up really well for a number of years and still look fine to show in with a little elbow grease. Just be sure to get them tall enough.

    I have it on trial and the fitter is coming Tuesday. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure the girth was done up 100%.

  17. Help for a saddle that slips to the side?

    Like the title says...Is there help, in the form of a girth or pad that will help stop a saddle slipping slightly to one side?

    It doesn't happen with other saddles.

    These pads are a few mm's thick. They aren't meant for "padding up" spots, just to keep the saddle from slipping. However, the one I have goes between the pad and the saddle, so it is just to keep...
