    We have a new model Kia Rio, which is better mileage plus a heated steering wheel. Has been very reliable with 100k on it so far.

    They may not be able to do much. The position of the stirrup leather is set by the position of the recess on the bottom of the tree, and so it's pretty permanent unless the leather isn't the same...

    Thanks! Rides well too, makes my current one seem lacking lol. Now I can finally start on one for myself.

    It's the same horse and saddle tree in both shots, just with the finished product shown in the right photo. I made this one, yes.



    Nope, 'fraid not. I can try to remember to get some with...

    He's probably objecting to the gullet getting narrower, if I had to guess. I've never had a horse object that much to changes in padding, but I'm pretty consistent.

    I think I'd personally prefer to have at least a rigging on though lol. I don't have as much faith in my own riding ability I guess, but I'm not cantering an unrigged tree.

    I did sit on (and get...

    What Dee said. Though riding without a rear cinch is still a really bad idea IMO, tipping significantly is usually an indication that the front half of the saddle isn't fitting well.

    Hey, if you clean your cinches after every 25 mile ride, hats off to your diligence. That's intro CTR length, and lots of 50 and 100 mile riders love mohair for its breathability and ease of use....

    What upkeep? If it gets crusty with sweat, rinse it out. Otherwise, nada.

    Keep at least two and have one drying while the other is usable...like any other working cowboy would do.

    No problemo. Mohair might seem expensive at first, but the truly last forever if taken care of.

    Just to tie in to the article, it's not necessarily that the latigos have to be vertical, but they...

    Pure mohair is easy to wash, and doesn't shrink. Cheap blends might have those issues.

    Worth reading and digesting. I like them as long as reasonable allowing for seasonal and fitness challenges. I also like single rigs, so as wide as possible, but that's just me.

    I've heard those "flexions" described as "headlock and nuggie horsemanship". You get submission, but it's not the willing submission that other people aspire to.

    If you were patient you could untie the cord, but I doubt it would be worth it. One of the nice parts about making clinches is that there aren't really many permenant actions other than cutting the...

    What style? It will only work if it's the appropriate length. Then either buy or make straps.

    Please don't. That's a legacy of back before skirts were blocked to the tree, and getting them wet allowed some shape to get into them. You'll do absolutely no good dunking a new saddle. Not likely...
