Has a great on-line store, great products, quick answer to email questions and easy check-out. My order was placed late evening and the items were shipped out the very next day. Prices were lower than what I could find locally!

Hooray Chuck and crew! My new favorite tack store is www.horsesaddleshop.com

Thank You,

Ree

Hi Saddletramp

Several years ago I purchased a used Australian saddle when I was visiting WY. I had never seen one before or since (in person) and was thrilled by how it fit my.... ah.... well... how it fit me. ;o)

Anyway, purchased it, hauled the thing home only to find that it didn't fit either horse that we had at that time, the horses were very round, mutton shouldered and the saddle would not stick.

Couple weeks ago, I hauled it out of storage and held my breath when trying it on Cody. It fit great! But mice had gotten to the (already sadly worn) cinch. In my area, I couldn't even find the two buckle type cinches.

Anyway, I check on-line and quizzed Chuck, and settled on a Australian Girth Converter which makes it possible to used a regular D ring cinch (instead of the Aussie or English two buckle design). And heck! Chuck's prices on Smart Cinches were much better than what I could find locally, so got one of those from him also.

I am one of those people who HATES shopping, so this was just a wonderful experience and I'm just thrilled at how fast I got the product.

"But wait!!! There's more!!!..... it slices! it dices!" oooops, sorry, got off on the wrong commercial script...... ;o)

Update:

Was finally warm enough to work out in the tack room this morn, got the converter on and the smart cinch is great! Did saddle him up, and got it all fitting well, but didn't ride. Too windy and cold for that today. Anyway, just wanted to thank you again for all the help and I would suggest the Australian Girth converter to anyone that doesn't want to mess with the double buckle set-up. Thanks!

I, too, purchased Australian tack replacement parts from Chuck! I bought my saddle on E-Bay...sorry Chuck! I love the way it fits me and holds me right in place. I feel so secure in it. I wanted the bigger EZ ride stirrups but they would not fit my leathers. I searched on line and found the best deal with Chuck. I had them in no time at all. I think I ordered them on Monday and had them by the end of the week and was ready to go again the next weekend. Chuck was so helpful and I love my "new" old saddle! I also use the converter, but found I had to use a shorter girth to compensate. And now for the BIG plus....since I ordered I got the newsletter and found this wonderful forum! That's the big bonus! And I know that if I ever need anything, I can usually find it here....tack or good advice! What more could you ask for??? Thanks again!

beccajane: I also just recently received an aussie saddle pad from Chuck. It is great! Today the temp. was 54 degrees, so got a chance to try out all the new stuff, and I am really pleased with it all. But, with any saddle/tack set up, there is always something that needs changing or fixing and since Cody has gained weight since I bought him, now it looks like I will need to get a larger back cinch. I ended up just removing it for todays ride, and wondering if I even need one. Do you use a back cinch with your Aussie saddle?

I am so impressed with the fit and secure feeling of this Aussie saddle. It is great!
