Think I figured out how to rig the saddle:
With helpful advice from some nice people, that is. The latigo goes through the cinch and main saddle ring twice, then back through the back, and then buckled to the cinch. This worked well, no sliding forward. But it was a pain in the butt to do, especially with his long yak fur.

Little boys playing in puddles:
Liam is there too, way back, in the ditch. Loving life.

Me playing with the macro setting (inspired by Life at the Rough String):
I think this would make a nice bookmark. Let me tell you, it took me a long time and a lot of detangler to get Bella's mane combed and braided.

I love the braid. I want to go braid all of my mare's manes tomorrow!!

The saddle looks confusing. Our balanced ride is kind of like that rigging.

Love that picture of the braid Andrea. I think that all is too confusing for this old brain.

Nice job on the macro! I love the detail of all the colors in Bella's mane :)

And he looks so cuddly with his "yak" fur :) But yeah, I can see how that'd make it hard to get things all cinched up.
