    So I got my Woody's Confidence Blend in the mail a few days ago, and it. smells. like. happiness. And of course, it cleans just as well as the other Higher Standards soaps.

    Alas, I lucked out--my trailer guy said the floor was in awesome shape and that I'd be a fool to replace it. So we didn't discuss other ideas. Sorry. :(

    First, some general answers, then a real answer.

    If in doubt, just contact the saddle manufacturer or distributor with that question. They know better than anyone which of their vendors is...

    Frank Baines and Loxley by Bliss are both based in the UK, so I'd be very surprised if you couldn't try them out--at least by mail order, if not through a local rep. Also, if you're in the UK,...

    I hate to be the first nay-sayer, but the Wise-Air saddles would be really low on my list for a flat-backed horse. They're curvy saddles that take a lot of cues from Devoucoux, which sponsored...

    I mean this as sincere advice: grow a pair and just ask already, with a genuine smile on your face. All they can say is no. You've already built karma points by showing them how you ride and doing a...

    The leather on the Ovation saddles are perfectly respectable, in fact I'd say they're comparable to most saddles that retail for double that price. There are definitely some $1000 saddles that I'd...
