    Although I agree with many that you can't fit all horses with one saddle, the most common size and the most common demo size a saddler will make is a 17.5 mw because it will fit the most horses. If...

    We still carry the endurance and dressage saddles or at least some of them. The jump saddles are nicely made and great if they fit your horse. We just didn't move them fast enough and that is why we...

    I would love to see one photo looking down on the back from behind the tail. I have a feeling your horse would do well in a saddle with a hoop tree or at least one with a broader or more generous...

    It could be that your saddle doesn't work with your conformation or the fit isn't quite right and balanced for your horse. There are so many variables such as depth of seat,stirrup placement, seat...

    It is hard to recommend a saddle without seeing more info. We like to use conformation shots and such as described under saddle fitting:

    I would definitely have the tree checked. It could be a rivet, a crack in the tree and so on so it is important when a horse flips with the saddle on to have it checked.

    The saddle really needs to be girthed to assess the fit and it would be better if you could take the front photo from a bit further away to get perspective. It is helpful to see not only the...

    The Eden is on the "dippy tree" and the Ricochet is on a different tree that does have some longitudinal curve but not quite as much. The Eden also has a more angular, lateral profile so that is...

    Looking at the photos indicate that your TB is broader then many although I do think you might still need a deeper front panel. Your horse may not need wither gussets but likely a K or trapezius type...

    Most TB's need a deeper front panel often with wither or full front gussets. Some saddles don't say K, trapezius or skid row in their description but if you turn the saddle over you can often see if...

    Half correction pads are really useful for this. Mattes, Thinline, ECP all carry them at different price points. Mattes which tends to be pricier comes with shims that can be stacked. Thinline shims...

    Did we already email? The Equinox is a closer feel and the tree is straighter longitudinally. The flap is also straighter with a high thigh block. The Soltice will feel a little bulkier in my opinion...

    The saddle really needs to be girthed as it does change the fit and balance. My gut feeling is that the saddle may sit down too much in front and not make great contact in back. It would be helpful...

    I think you only tried one saddle from us. In a perfect world a BC Eden would be good but I think what we had available wasn't in your price range. Keep an eye on our site as I update weekly and...

    There is not really a set rule about fingers. It is more personal preference within reason. Some people feel lost in a saddle that would seem to fit and some feel right in a saddle that seems a bit...

    A saddle might slip back for many reasons but you mention that your horse has gained weight. That can cause the saddle to sit pommel high and then slip back. Photos would be helpful, no pad and...

    Your horse needs a saddle that is not too straight longitudinally and has broad panels with a decently wide gullet channel and pommel arch. The problem with both of those saddles, more the second one...

    You can sometimes find a used saddle with a wither gusset and dropped or K panel. We get used County and Black Country saddles for example that have those options and are in or close to 2000.00,...

    I would like to see the saddle from the side without a pad. The back contact looks okay but I can't tell if it is impinging on the spine edge. If it is, not wide enough in the gullet channel. The...

    Hard to say what would be effective without seeing how low it sits and if the shape is even close to being right. If the saddle can be flocked, then have it adjusted, we do that, and then get a pad...
