Does anyone have any suggestions for dressage saddles with short flaps (approx 15")? Budget is 3k. I have been trying to do business with Custom Saddlery (S.Peters Advantage), but their customer service leaves a lot to be desired.
I've had super luck finding used saddles with short flaps, although it takes a bit of looking. Ditto the recommendation for Pelham Saddlery - they do a huge used saddle business and I've lucked out there before.
Also check Rick's Heritage, VTO, Trumbull Mountain, fine-used-saddles.com
Personally, I love Custom Saddles and have never had a complaint with the customer service. (You could always go through Dover if you really wanted to try an off-the-shelf advantage. I believe they can order the short flap option.)
AFA other brands, I've also had Frank Baines, Prestige, Master, and Passier short flap saddles. County, Kieffer, Schleese, Niedersuss, & Hennig also come to mind.
Good luck with your saddle search!
