    I suppose you could try a rear cinch to see if it helps, but a lot of vertical movement isn't good. My saddle fits my mare and is designed to be used with a rear cinch. However, the saddle doesn't...

    What size tree is the Courbette? Does your Belgium have more of a curvy back or flat? He's probably wide as a couch too, eh?

    On my internet travels, I've read that County saddles fit these broad...

    I have seen dressage saddles in seats smaller than 17"... but not often. I have a 16.5" Albion in my possession at the moment, but I haven't seen another dressage saddle in that size or smaller,...

    I have an older mare that pretends to be saddle shy. She is extremely well broke, but she’s a crafty old broodmare. She’s learned that pretending to spook at the saddle will cause people to just give...

    It's possible, just doubtful given the prices of similar saddles in the market. I have my Verhan listed for $1500. The exact same size and model just sold in a consignment tack store for $2300. I've...

    Thanks for the input! I try to mention in my ads the type of horses I've used it on. In a recent add, I stated, "Used primarily on my short backed Quarter Horse with average wither. It seemed to fit...

    I have a black 17" Verhan Odyssey in a wide tree that has worked quite well with my mare who also has a flat, short back. She's not particularly wide, but has been called stocky (when compared to my...

    I'm definitely open to, and welcome the idea of a US buyer. I'm very familiar with the process and can generally get a pretty accurate quote for them very quickly (I live just around the corner from...
  11. Selling a dressage saddle - some tips to make it more appealing?

    Hey all! I am currently trying to sell two dressage saddles and am not having much luck. I believe they are priced quite competitively for what they are, but feel maybe I'm representing them...

    Yep, her name is Vanna. I met her for the first time when she was a crazy 2 year old at the racing stable where I worked. She and I just clicked. I loved her, she seemed to like me. Soon enough, I...

    Standardbreds are hidden gems. I have two of them, and my young mare has a HUGE trot. I find it extremely difficult to ride, because it's so naturally extended. She's pushing 17hh at 6 years old, and...

    I have two larger dogs (one is a pitbull cross and weighs 55lbs and the other is a Doberman that currently weighs almost 100lbs). Both are terrified of water. Bath time is... interesting.

    The bridle is all mine! I ended up offering her $250 shipped, and she negotiated to $260. Considering my next choice of bridle was the same price for a lower quality brand, I think I got the deal of...

    Of the few horses I've sold, I haven't felt any special attachment to them. That's why I sold them. I have a senior-aged, lame and very witchy mare that I just can't part with. As far as I'm...

    Thanks, all! Upon further contact with the seller, I've been told that the reins are not Schleese and the cheekpieces were replaced. Not sure if they're Schleese or not, but that's not a huge concern...

    Schleese bridles?

    I am currently searching for a new bridle for my horse and I admit it, I am a snob for well-known brands. I believe that I get what I pay for, and I am not opposed to paying more for a brand I know...

    My horses live primarily on pasture, unless it's winter and they are in a private run with a buddy. This costs me $150 per month, per horse, with as much hay as they can possibly eat. It also...
