    Well today after months out of the saddle we finally tried my new Barefoot Chereoke saddle on Melody, I bought it with the physio pad, western fenders and soft step western stirrups.

    Here is sexy Melody modelling it before out ride :D

    I love these saddles. I can't get on with fenders, but hope you do.
    Nosey question, what girth is that?
    If you get on with it ok you are welcome to add to my review site.

    The fenders are a bit weird and I think I had them too short too my legs were killing after 30 mins walk. But the saddle I absolutely love its like sitting on a deep comfy cushioned arm chair so comfy which is what I have been looking for as we are only going to plod and hack now. I know it will need riding in for both of us so will take it nice and gentle and slowly.

    The girth is a Wintec dressage I bought 4 different sizes for £30 2nd hand just wasn't sure what size she would be ...shes in a 30 at the minute... do it look ok New forest or would you go for bigger or smaller ?

    I will give it a good trial and do a review once we are doing more work :)

    As long as her elbow isn't in line with the buckles you have a fair bit of flexibility with a dressage girth.

    The saddle looks like it would tip you forward at the moment, @newforest do they take time to bed in from new?

    Yes they do take time to mould and you will need to readjust as you go.
    It can go back slightly but that depends on how it rides.
