    Well, County has a narrow twist. There are many other factors you need to consider though. What other features are you interested in?

    I am not a dressage rider so not a super deep seat, something that fits my MW cob and myself

    Horses are amazing athletes and make no mistake -- they are the stars of the show!

    I always thought this saddle was intereesting. about $1000.00

    http://www.saddlefitter.com/vienna_ii.htm

    [CENTER][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4]The Vienna II features a slightly deeper seat and stitched knee pads which frame and support the leg. The billet suspension system includes a front billet drawing off the saddle tree points. It lays under the knee block and exits near the bottom of the flap, thereby securing the front of the saddle with superior authority. The middle and back billets are joined by a "V". I find that the tree and panels offer a great communication between horse and rider in the Vienna II. The architecture of the tree and the construction of the seat allows you to correctly ride the twist, which is on the narrower side. Perhaps the feature I like the best on this saddle is the way the padding under the flap frames the thigh. It makes it very easy to allow the thigh to align itself to the horse's sides and thereby obtain a correct hip to heel line.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]The saddle is made with a lightly grained black bridle leather that breaks in beautifully. Five Year warranty on the saddle tree. See below for suggested fittings to this saddle.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]15" available in Wide 34 cm tree, 16" in Medium 32 cm & Wide 34 cm tree. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]17", 18" & 19" seat sizes in Standard 30 cm, Medium 32 cm, Wide 34 cm & Extra Wide 36 cm. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]20" seat available in Medium 32 cm, Wide 34 cm & Extra Wide 36 cm. ($960.00 for 20" seat.)[/SIZE]
    [/SIZE][/CENTER]
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    See here:

    prestige optimax
    luc childeric
    amerigo has option of narrow twist
    Legato
    max benz grand prix special

    Trilogy has a deep seat and narrow twist

    HDR here: http://www.classicsaddlery.com/saddl...nriderivel.htm

    Some of the Crosbys and some of the Kieffers also have a very narrow twist. If you call a good tack shop, they can help. Classic Saddlery, Trumbull Mtn, Pelham-Saddlery all probably knowledgeable enough
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Schleese JES Advanced

    No longer made, but I recently found a great deal on one that was used only 6 times. I found that many of saddles that supposedly had a narrow twist weren't narrow enough for me, though I haven't tried everything listed here.

    May need to start w/ your guy first.
    I love a narrow twist, unfortunately had the hardest time fitting my Cob pony.
    Spirig seems almost custom on him.
    Tried;
    Passier, Kieffer, Crosby, Dominus, County, Mansion House & Thornhill Vienna-all no good.
    Luckily I'm a saddle fanatic and own all of the above.

    I've a question - How can 29cm tree be considered wide? Saddle in question is a very old Passier.
