I have no explanation for that oversight. This is a really cool store with stacks of saddles everywhere.Seriously, this store is filled with saddles!
Of course I had to sit in one.
Cara did, too.
The girl who was working at the store was really nice and was more than happy to talk about Australian saddles all day. I especially appreciated the tacking up lesson.
Now that I understand how all the pieces go together, I really want to make an Australian saddle!
I took lots of pictures of all the different colors and styles...
As well as lots of detail shots.
The cantle of a standard type Australian saddle.
The cantle of a Western style Australian saddle. Can you spot the differences?
