In the meantime, I went to check out that spotted horse again, this time dragging Don with me so he could evaluate him for me. I'm glad I did. It only took a few seconds of Don working with him for me to see that he was way too green for what I'd like to do. I was kinda bummed because I love his little personality. Oh well.
Got myself some leather cleaner and cleaned the saddle I bought a few weeks ago.
Three Bar Saddlery seems to be a very small place ... haven't found much information about them other than that website. Still have work to do ... need to put some more holes in the leather so I can shorten up the stirrups and trim the extra leather. Need to get a cinch, a pad and a blanket, but then I should be good to go.
Oh ... and a horse. Need one of those.
