    I've ridden in both a bull leather option and elephant ear leather option Innovation. They were both well broken in at that point, and the bull leather was the grippiest thing I've ever sat in--it...

    If I had to pick a new location to move to, it'd be SE PA for that reason!! I'm in central PA, so while all the events/schoolings aren't in my backyard, they're within a reasonable 3-4 hour drive.

    I use a Fleeceworks Perfect Balance half pad. My saddle is an M, and my horse is a N/MN. I got the pad to tide him over until his back stops changing, and I like it. It isn't the fanciest of...
