    I'm in. Will have to get a different one for Boscoe, though--the gold paisley one was a perfect match for chestnut/appy Keebler. Perhaps black and white polka dots for piebald Boscoe?

    I don't want to be a downer either but I had two very bad experiences with custom saddles. Fortunately I got my money back in both cases, but I would never go the custom route again, ever.

    You are welcome to PM me if you would like details.

    If you have definitely decided to go for it, I can give you some suggestions on how to stack the deck in your favor prior to any exchange of $$$.

    Too fun, DW! My jump saddle is custom and I couldn't love it more.

    BUT! HALFHALT!

    I had a complete and total panic attack when I first rode in it. It was beautiful, and fit the horse perfectly, but when I got in it, ready to burst with anticipation of the perfection I was about to experience, my heart about broke. It was horrible. I couldn't ride in it to save my life.. I was ready to cry.

    And then I oiled it, and life's been good ever since. Yeah, I couldn't wait for them to oil it for me (I may not be able to build one, but I'm fully capable of oiling a saddle!). Figured I'd let you know in advance in case you're the impatient sort as well.

    Good luck! Hope it turns out as well as mine did.
