    Full sheepskin for sure! You won’t see anything off the saddle.

    And a summer time alternative?
    I'd die sweating in that. I can't handle heat/humidity well. =(

    The sheepskins actually breathe pretty well! We use ours year round even on the hottest days.

    Sheepskin is not hot, you can even ride in shorts if you cover your leathers in sheepskin too.
    That saddle is just.....sad.
    Poor thing needs retired so it can spend the rest of it's days relaxing on a saddle rack, watching TV, drinking ....

    Oh wait, it's a saddle. :blushing:

    Sure hope it works!

    Preliminary results, after freshly painted n dried, wet hands/items will make it bleed.
    I kept rubbing and it seems like it's just the excess, more water didn't continue to make it bleed, and should be fine once I wash that off.
    Will do that hopefully today.
