I used to have a bad opinion of Butet until
I worked with one of Beval Fitters on the phone, i already knew from other saddles and fitters what i really needed. The panels that Butet offers is amazing , my question is does anyone know or even research the options.
I have the a butet that i custom paneled , with a regular tree but the difference is in the panels.
So I used to think Butet was only for the rider BUT I know now after having amazing help from the NJ fitter help me design a fit for our modern warmbloods. So if you love the feel but are concerned about the horse there is options. Educate yourself I have had every saddle imaginable and I also work with 2 companys that were custom and had fitters. I would buy my custom Butet wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy beforew any of my past choices.
So it's 2 years later and my Customed Panel Butet still is awesome
So if you have a challenged horse contact Beval to discuss or meet with their fitter.
I have had no issues and I compete aa and go thru spurts of 6 weeks without stirrups , hmmm no back pain! Well I am talking about the horse !!!!!!!
