Thinking about a Saddle

This is not going to be one of those bemoaning-saddle-fit threads, although I could certainly write one with gusto, but one of optimism.  I want to get a good-quality, well-fitting Western saddle for Starlight, so I can get her going on all things cow. 

I heard that Meleta Brown (The Freedom Saddle) is a skilled saddler, and so, contacted her.  She asked for a photo of me in my current Western saddle (an inexpensive and shoulder-pinching Simco), so hubby took a couple of me today on my high-headed and out-of-shape paint pony.  I don't have a decent Western bridle, and so, once again, I managed to be a total mishmash of riding styles, but hopefully it will tell her what she needs to know.  She is good about sending trial saddles, so that will be the next step.

Stay tuned!
