Well, this is kind of hard to explain...
I did buy a new saddle today.
See, My Honey gave me money as an Anniversary present, because I said I wanted to buy a barrel saddle that fit Moon. Obviously this is a personal item that MH would never dream of trying to purchase for me.
Sooo, since the Sharon Camarillo is going to fit Moon and all I had to do was order a more appropriate saddle pad. Which I did. My Tod Sloan is on the way. However, if that doesn't work, I am going to look into the CSI pads that SDCowgirl told me about.
Huh...So how come this little shyster is sitting in it?
The other day when I went to town to look for coolers, Meg and I saw this saddle. It's a Cactus Saddlery, Ladies All Around. And it was on sale. The lady in the store didn't know what the sale price was because they (the store owners) had just gotten back from The Denver Stock Show and hadn't had time to go through and remark everything. She asked me to stop back today.
I just couldn't resist. After all, I was given the money to purchase a new saddle...r.i.g.h.t.??
The fact of the matter is, Megan and I have been wanting a roping saddle that wasn't so stinking heavy. My roping saddle is a beast and it was the only one we had that had a tree that could handle being roped in. So...now we finally have a 2nd saddle that is more appropriate for break-away roping in and we can also run barrels in. I specifically told Megan that we are going to 'share' this saddle, but to be honest, the poor kid hasn't had her own saddle since she outgrew her youth Sharon Camarillo a few years ago.
Happy Anniversary kiddo!!
