    I personally am a big fan of Stubben's billets. You can likely find a repair shop or a Stubben dealer who can order them for you, or you can call Stubben North America and they may be able to direct you.
    Challenge: pick a "women's" magazine and tear out every page that says you don't look good enough, cook well enough, diet enough, etc; see if there is enough left to spell the alphabet.

    I'd ask Gary Mundy, he of the world's best leathers. Betcha he could make exactly what you want.

    Contact the saddlemaker
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.
