Quick! Help me pick which saddle deal is better
I'm looking at two different saddles. First, a bit of a background:
I'm an ex-young rider. I'm currently working a few young horses now, waiting until I get out of graduate school to buy my own. I've got a bad back (don't we all??) and I really enjoy a deep seat. I have a great Schleese that I LOVE but I want to keep it nice and wait until I have my own horse thats a bit older and then have it fitted. In the meantime, I need something affordable to use in training.
So... which do I get??? (they are the same price)
Saddle 1: Wintec 500 Dressage with leathers, irons, girth and cover. Used, but no wear on the saddle. Has CAIR and adjustable gullets.
Saddle 2: Kieffer Wein DL, no leathers, irons, girth or cover. Not new, faded so that the knee rolls are no longer black but look chocolate colored (so is different piece of leather included behind the leg) it almost looks like it is bi-colored black and brown. (is it possible to dye these and have them still look okay??)
and after hearing this... just to make sure I'm not paying too much, what (around) would you pay for these???
