    Default custom dressage saddles?

    I have a really nice OTTB who is now ready for a dressage saddle (lower level eventer here) - VERY hard to fit. Am thinking Stackhouse, any comments or suggestions?
    ~ it no longer matters what level I do, as long as I am doing it..~ with many thanks, to Elizabeth Callahan

    The only custom saddle we have purchased is a Hulsebus for our GRP pony stallion Popeye and we are extremely pleased with the quality and fit.

    I love mine, but it really depends on the local representative. That is the person who is fitting the horse and the fit will only be as good as they are. Mine is from a local, smaller custom saddlery but the owner is extremely knowledgeable and does beautiful work.

    Just got my Stackhouse custom monoflap. It needed a point strap to girth the horses well but now fits Anglo/Trak and TBs as well as me as I have or had a balance issue only to find that it was the saddle too. Now we are happy but need to reconstruct some attitude problems that occurred with ill-fitting saddlesGo for it!!!!

    Robin Hosler. He is in Nashville, but does travel (comes back to Michigan). I know of two people who he made custom saddles for and they love them.
