I think it fits!

The new saddle I ordered finally arrived today. I missed the UPS delivery and so had to drive up to Springfield to pick it up at the main facility. By the time I got to the barn it was too late to ride, but I popped Willow in the cross ties and did a preliminary check of the fit. Everything looks good! I can't wait to try it out for real tomorrow. Willow's had a week off waiting for the new saddle, so she'll likely be feeling frisky.

I put my Kieffer up for sale on Ebay and watched the thrilling finish of the auction late last night. Two people got in a bidding war and I ended up getting over $100 more than I expected. Bless you, Ebay.

Tomorrow's forecast: sunny, with temps in the mid seventies. It's been cold and dreary for so long that I'd just about lost the will to live. It's spring fever time!

I bought a new Custom Saddlery "Advantage" model. Custom is Steffen Peters's brand, and I have a friend in Nebraska who has one and loves it. They're supposed to be great for high-withered horses. I got it from Dressage Extensions, and they have a generous test-ride program, which is awesome.
