    Most do need a deeper front panel but K and dropped panels fit differently and horses have preferences. Wither or full front gussets may also be needed to allow for balancing the saddle but not...

    The first photo suggests that the saddle is slightly pommel high and a bit forward. The second looks low. Many times a horse needs a particular panel configuration, not just tree width to clear the...

    A photo such as the one provided doesn't give us info on your horse's conformation even if a nice one! Here are examples of what is helpful:

    We have sold them on consignment and were told and read on Albion distributor websites that the head is interchangeable, not like the Wintec or Thorowgood style and should be done by an Albion rep.

    They are nice saddles designed by the woman who worked with Black Country for years. We were going to carry them but they were very similar to BC.

    Most TB's are fairly similar in that they generally need an A shaped saddle with some panel support in front and they are almost always a m or mw. Many English saddles can be widened or narrowed a...

    They do last and generally fit the more angular type horse. If you look at them from the back, the degree of lateral angle can be quite different relative to when they were made. Some are very...

    COTH on the search but sit in it for sure because they often feel like flat tires but are not.

    Flair panels tend to feel squishy as the air will displace and equalize. There was considerable discussion recently on Flair and bicycle pumps if you do a search. I have done Flair to wool...

    If the saddle does get wet, allow it to dry naturally and clean off any sand and mud. If it is on a stand, just make sure the rails of the stand don't dent the saddle. If flocked, it should dry out...

    You might look into Duett jump saddles. I do think a hoop tree has good potential. He doesn't look so wide as round and a hoop tree or a saddle with a more generous rounder pommel arch might "drape"...

    T right before the number usually means it was made for Trumbull Mtn. Template is usually indicated by a seat size such as 17.5 T. A Trumbull saddle would be T1234. From whom did you buy it. We may...

    It's not uncommon to have both wool and flair, particularly for horses that have a challenging fit in front. The Flair disperses to equalize the pressure in the "nooks and crannies" so to speak.

    Honestly, I haven't heard of all of these lines but I do think you will likely need a saddle that is generous in both gullet and gullet channel laterally. Some of those listed such as the County,...

    I like some of the saddles with the changeable gullets. If the saddle is a good shape laterally and longitudinally, then you have some flexibility with the gullet plates but if your horse changes...

    She may or may not bring that area up. She may need some more depth of panel in that area such as a K, skid row or drop/trapezius panel and or wither or full front gussets. Many Arabs also need a...

    I would recommend that you do wither tracings and send conformation shots such as described on this link:

    Flair can be adjusted and can be quite wonderful from some horses. It can also be removed and converted back to wool for not too much if you decided you don't like it.

    BC trees can be widened about a size with a tree press by someone experienced. The Eden is built on the "dippy" tree. Your horse isn't too curvy. This saddle also has wither gussets and usually,...

    Suggesting a saddle is difficult as I like to base the suggestion on what type horse first and then the rider. It has to fit both horse and rider but there really is no point suggesting a model if...

    More surface area spreads out the pressure so too short is not good. It really depends, also on the shape as some are rounded at the top and you don't want that interfering with the elbow.

    I like...

    I take apart my bridles before every show but wipe them down weekly or more and clean the bit after every ride.
