I want to say thank you to JB for making me a new flank billet for my saddle. He did a fantastic job. The only thing left is to get a few screws and nails replaced at the point of the jockey and the cantle, then I will be ready to ride in my favorite saddle again. Don't worry, JB, I don't care if it matches or not! I probably didn't even need to replace it, but I figure it was on the saddle when I bought it, so I might as well use it!
Now that spring has sprung, I will be getting some riding time in.
