Here's the new saddle! It felt weird at first, but after riding for a few minutes it was fine. For me, that is. I'm not sure about Tonka. It rides forward. I wonder if that's how these saddles are supposed to sit? Kind of like an Orthoflex sits on the shoulders? I know some saddle sites even say a hard tree is supposed to sit over the shoulders, but I don't think they meant on a bony horse like Tonka. Suggestions?
Also, does anyone know a good way to punch more holes in a nylon latigo strap? A hot nail has been suggested, but how the heck do I get it that hot?
I'm going to ride again today, Kara is coming out and she's going to ride Cisco. It ought to be fun! And hopefully I'll get some more insight on how this saddle works. Kara has the same saddle so maybe she can help me out.
