    Just thought I'd share my new saddle. It's a Jeff Smith. I bought it when I went to Texas in August. I also bought another 7/8" 5 star pad, which is shown in the pic. I also bought a Diamond Wool pad, and a complete bridle. I love tack shopping in Texas :p

    This saddle is called dark chocolate. It looked black in the showroom, but it's dark. The salesman threw in the Toklat cinch and took $50 off the breast collar.

    This is my first new saddle in over 20 years. My husband fussed about me buying it, even though I'd saved for 4 years to buy it. It's growing on me, I've only ridden in it 3 times since I bought it. Just haven't had the want to to ride.

    It's not as comfortable as the Roohide. But it'd be hard to find one that was. I need to oil the tie strap and I ordered a new off billet since it came with the half breed off billet. Anyway, I like it, and that's all that matters. :)

    That's awesome. I've ridden in a few Jeff Smith. They were very comfy and roomy. Once you get that baby broke in I'm sure it'll be the same

    Ooo, that looks like it just melts into the horse. Close feel, too?
