    I would look at Gryphon Farm in Schomberg - Mac and Christi are great with juniors and produce solid eq riders.

    A lot depends on whether it is high or low ring bone, and whether it is in the joint or surrounding it. Shoeing can be adjusted to compensate. It's not necessarily a riding horse career ender...

    Intrepid saddles are around the same price point and are usually a great fit for the higher wither types. IMO, they are nicer and better quality than the HDR. They also come with adjustable gullets...
