    Black Country has been suggested several times but the exact model/configuration I need seems quite rare within my budget.

    Thanks everyone. Good suggestions. The only reason I'm saying foam is because we don't have easy access to qualified fitters.

    The thing is, this horse is just 4 yrs old so he'll change. This is why I'm looking on the cheaper side as it will be a temporary saddle.

    I replaced all our fencing with the centaur version of the coated high tensile you posted above. Looks nice and very safe IMO. All four strands of mine are electric, I probably didn't need to...

    As said above, that is going to be a long trailer and with all that weight on the bumper, not likely a smooth ride. You'll probably gethe a lot of bounce at that pivot point.
