Dressage Saddles with flat panels?
So I've been trying to wade my way through saddle shopping. I have tracings on their way to Trumbull Mtn, but since they don't have a lot in my budget ($1200 or less, very open to used), I might have to look elsewhere.
Of all the saddles I have tried, her favorite by far is the Wintec 500 Wide. My barn owner uses this on his Percheron! Looking at her I would not think she is that broad, but she LOVES this saddle. Floaty trot, smooth transitions, happy expression.
Problem is, I hate it. Seat is super uncomfy, balance isn't quite right, and I really want leather. I think she might like it because of the broad, flat panels as she is really table backed. The gullet isnt actually that wide.
So, wise COTHers, what saddles have broad, flat panels that might work?
Broad Flat Panels? Check. :-)
