    Default Saddle Help-Long Legs, Flat Back

    Help! I need to find a cheap saddle for my sale project horse. None of the saddles I have fit him. He is going to be a problem to fit; high, shark fin withers and a flat back. And add to that I have a VERY long thigh and have a hard time finding something that fits me!

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    You are better off finding someone with experience using pads to help fit your saddle such as an Ecogold product, rather than buy a "cheap" saddle for a sale project horse.

    Something like this;

    They have ones with built in halfpads too.

    I have an Ainsley Pro National for sale that fit my thoroughbred and I very well - he had shark fin withers as well, and I had the LONGEST thigh... Took me months to find a saddle, but now that I no longer have a horse, it's just sitting in my house..
