Sport Saddle tips

Lynne -

I really enjoyed your post with tips for the Sport Saddle.  Where did you
get the 3/4", 30" long dog collars?  I recently purchased some 2" biothane
leathers from Sportack.  After 6 rides the biothane is rubbed off at the
ring and these suckers cost $60 a pair.   Fortunately, the folks at
Sportack, where I purchased the leathers, are letting me return them and
giving me a refund.  Janeen said the company recently changed the ring
design from square to round which causes the problem.  Anyway the dog collar
thing sparked my interest.
