RC: Re: aussie saddles

Heidi, you have to be very careful with aussie saddles made outside of
Australia.  The saddle may be made from Indian (country) leather, which is
tanned with urine, and which will ALWAYS smell bad.  I have had aussie
saddles since 1983 and currently have 3 Syd Hills.   IMHO, you would be
better off buying a used Syd Hill in good condition than a new
non-aussie-made saddle.  If you want further information about the various
types, check out Australian Connection, which is listed in the vendors on
