[RC] Skyrider saddle revisited - rosalie

Hi all -

Not too long ago, someone mentioned the Skyrider saddle. I checked it 
out online and spoke with Colin Dangaard (who now sells a version made 
in India), and the upshot is that I've ordered it.

I've searched RC archives, and can only find reference to the Skyrider 
in posts from the years 1997-1999.  I don't know if these are the 
original or the re-makes, in any event, there was not much info.

I'm wondering if anyone here has used these, what did they like/not 
like, what sort of pad did you find worked well for you, and what kind 
of girth.  The girthing system is a "tackaberry", which seems very 
similar to the "Y" rigging some of you use on western saddles.  I'll 
have it for a two-week trial and would like to try it in as many 
situations as I can and (since it's main attraction for me was the 
promise that it would fit many different horse-shapes) on a variety of 
horses, my own and my friends'.

I come from an english saddle background, not much experience with 
western and none with aussie.
