Re: saddles

Shannon, The Australian saddle has probably sdded 10 years to my life!   I
found the Australian saddle concepts so neat  I got totally sold on them,
and now much to my chagrin 10 years ago I wound up selling them .  Chagrin
because I swore I'd never sell anything ( I didn't even like selling Girl
Scout cookies!)  and now I am considered one of the pioneers in this
industry in the USA.  Ride in the saddle with seatbelts!You are invited to
check out the inventory on www.  and also , even consignments, and All about Shiloh, if you're
interested,  for some shameless self promotion.  If you have any questions,
feel free to ask me.    The background of the running palomino is mine.
Judy, Duvall, Wa.
