The woman working there, said it was only $899.00. ONLY!?! My husband just looked at me and then said I needed to step away from the saddle. I was heart broken. Mike is pretty easy going with me. He spoils me when he can and usually never says no. I think in 9 years of marriage he has said no 3 times. So the answer was no and we thanked her for my temporary comfort. It is a gorgeous saddle and when money is better, then I can have one. I have been looking though and I think if I play my cards right, I can find one cheaper with a discount that some of these stores give out when you sign up for emails from them. My dream saddle isn't such a dream anymore.
On a Sunday 2 weeks ago, I was able to ride on an Wintec dressage saddle that a friend of mine was trying out. Fantastic saddle for a synthetic with no suede on it and used. I loved it. Posting was easier for me too. Unfortunately the owner wants $300.00 for it and if I'm right, it wont take long for her to sell it. So that night after I got home, I sat down to my laptop and opened up Ebay.
There are so many people selling items that it takes quite a while to find something your interested in and then hope your bid wins. So while looking I stumbled upon a black dressage saddle in the size for me that I needed . It also came in a medium tree which will fit Big Lou. On the page it said $100.00 or BO. It came with stirrup straps, irons and a green blanket. I sent an offer in and within 5 min received an answer. So with my pay pal, I sent out $75.00. This saddle is almost brand new. You will see it at the top of the my page with my crazy cat Jocelyn, who apparently is an ham for the camera.
