Yay a saddle!
My saddle and bridle finally arrived and it is aweeeesome.
Naturally Aslan made sure to get lots of melted snow and mud on himself, so I wasn't able to try it out the very next day.
We did get the bridle on though!
About a month after this I ended up taking off the western style stirrups, despite how pretty they are. They hurt my knees, so I bent and twisted them and oiled and used a broomstick and they were still hurting my knees. I got bought some English safety stirrups and we are all better now. Less bulk too.
