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 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.
