Finished a rug

Got an order for his rug Sunday night and just finished it today. Rug is 11x20 inches and one of my favorite patterns that I designed. The date on the rug represents the year my grandmother was born, the one I am named after. She was very talented, an artist, milliner, and had studied to be a concert pianist.
I am saving for a new saddle so this will help. I have decided that the dressage saddle has to go. I like the saddle but Gilly's back has changed and now sitting in the saddle is putting my legs in a different position and it hurts! I want an all purpose English saddle, my legs won't be so straight down and long stirrups. With the all purpose, my stirrups can be a little shorter and my legs a little more forward. Better for jumping too!!!

Beautiful rug!
Yes, if you intend to jump you should definitely go with a forward seat or an all purpose.

Nice rug! I'll bet making them is relaxing. I could use a little of that about now. lol

Getting a saddle that fits is so important. Sounds like you know what you need. That's a great start in the process.

Lovely and unique design for that rug, Jane. Nice job. I hope you can save enough for your new saddle soon. Riding with pain is no fun at all.
