    You could look at the Kerrits Griptek breech, but if it's just a schooling thing, consider your other options. A cheap pair of full chaps, some Sadl-Tite or Sporty Haft Spray to add more "tack" to...

    Finding a medium Tipp is sort of like finding a 17.5" medium-treed saddle: everyone's looking for them and few people will part with them.

    My local Nordstrom's store sells them in the lingerie department, and they do allow you to try them on. I've also tried them on at Target in the regular ol' dressing room.

    Not a saddle, but I've cleaned a pair of white leather shoes (real leather, not vinyl) with HSLC. No problems. The shoes looked and felt great.

    Well, here's the million dollar questions:

    1. How old is the saddle? If it's more than 5 years old, then this whole discussion is sort of moot point. In theory, the Schleese Adaptree is warrantied...
