    Here are the saddles I'm currently considering.

    1. The 18" M SLK HH from the fitter. The person who has it out on trial is taking their sweet time about deciding whether they want it. This is...

    I know! I'm somewhat mortified. :winkgrin: Not only a western.. but an old schooling saddle with this ginormous southwestern pad that I NEED to use with this saddle because it's too wide for him,...

    I'm fairly set on Albions because I really, really loved the one I bought (Legend K2). If it could have been altered to fit my horse I would not have sold it. I'm not against old saddles by an...

    My Kieffer sold quickly (priced it low) and I found a Legend K2 in immaculate condition for less than half the price of new. Should be here next week and then I'll get the fitter out to check it....

    I can get the fitter out to evaluate another saddle but she's about 3 hours away so only gets up this way every so often. She said she'll be back in about 6 weeks (5 weeks now, I guess). I do have...

    Three of the options apply to me (possibly four).

    1) I went alone to look. I took a video camera and had the sellers video me riding.

    I think there SHOULD be a huge market for these kinds of horses but there doesn't seem to be.

    What I see is a lot of beginning riders struggling with the big movement of their warmbloods. But,...

    Horze.com has great products, but they are usually NEVER in stock on more popular sizes. It seems they are focusing more on supplying other companies rather than keeping their own store in stock. :(...

    My horse has a big shoulder so that's the problem I'm having with fitting. My saddle fitter recommended the Butterfly as one option. It's a bit more than I want to spend, however.
