Well, it's done.
I don't particularly like it, but it is finished.
At this point all I can see are the faults and things that need to be fixed.
I wanted to take this to WA in two weeks and show with it at Ultimate Gold Live, but, lol, that's so not happening.
Instead, I'm going to review the faults and things I don't like with this saddle, do some more pattern surgery, and go head down, bum up and work on another incarnation.
And order some stirrups from Allison!
