    Not everyone can afford the winner. A horse that can consistently win at 1.25m, jump higher on occasion, and also take care of their rider/pack someone around at that height is worth more than $45K...

    I pulled my C&C 2+1 (with extended DR) with my F250 for years, including up into the mountains of VT, with no problems at all. Loved that set up.

    I wouldn't touch a Sundowner given the many...

    I completely agree with this. The fitter makes all the difference, no matter which brand you are talking about.

    I personally liked my HK quite a lot when I first got it, 1 1/2 years ago. To set the record straight: It was indeed purchased from a (great) rep/fitter out in CA - Karen at Art2Ride.

    It is the rule that allows only one show to hold an A rating on a particular date within a certain mileage radius. I do dressage now and haven't looked at this rule in ages but back in the day I...

    Again, I started this thread to ask about Custom brand saddles, not to debate the issues with my Schleese. I also never suggested the brand or fitter was worthless.

    For the record, though... of...

    Thanks, all, for taking the time to comment and share your experiences.

    I really do think the individual fitter is as, or maybe even more important, than the brand of saddle. And I also really...

    Yep, I agree about the rep being a key factor, for sure. And I no doubt that saddle fit and preference are very individual, certainly. Good point about being able to trade the saddle in later if...

    Why would you care? I didn't start this thread to debate whether or not to keep my Schleese. My HK was extremely expensive. Since it does not work for me, I'd like for it to retain as much of its...

    Great to know, thanks very much. The one I am trying out is pretty minimalist, but I do feel very secure and balanced in it. :)

    OP, of course everyone's situation is different but I just thought I would share that I had TKR at 20... I had some congenital laxity in my joints that contributed to damage that I did when I was...

    I've purchased my last 3 from Europe (not auctions though.) I wanted a nicely started, quality young horse around 4 years old that would make up into a good amateur hunter.

    Maybe I've just been...

    Custom (brand) saddles?

    So... I am finally giving up on trying to get my 1 1/2 year old Schleese to fit me & my horse properly (uber sigh) and am starting the search for its replacement.

    I had a local independent fitter...

    Agreed. It would be useful to learn what the options are in different parts of the country.

    In my (suburban, southern) area, there seem to be a few options for retirees. Obviously you can board...

    V, you are correct. I did take (weekly) lessons outside of PC, and I also learned quite a bit from the auditing and unmounted opportunities I got thru PC.
