Dressage Saddle for the Horseless?
I perused older threads but didn't really see what I was looking for, so I apologize in advance if I am dredging up and old topic that has been beat to death! I am looking for a relatively inexpensive dressage saddle or a close-contact all-purpose saddle that could be used for multiple horses. I ride several different school horses, mostly Thoroughbreds of about average height and width, so I'm not too concerned with a hard-to-fit horse.
I know Toulouse has several "genesis" lines that allow the size to be adjusted; it's a consideration, but in pictures it seems like a lot of saddle. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I'm definitely not interested in Wintec, but maybe a used Stubben or Passier? Does anyone have experience buying a used saddle on eBay, or would that be a no-no?
Any advice would be much appreciated. This is my first saddle purchase, so I feel like I'm flying blind a bit.
P.S. If you've got suggestions for stirrups, too, I wouldn't turn them down!
