You could send Kryswyn a PT, she knows saddles and could answer some of your questions.
The Chubby Pony recently had one in the used section. It's sold but you can figure a price range if you look at a few ads.
sold Stubben Rex 15" W made in Germany. Stubben's original children's Rex with doeskin padded flaps and moderate kneerolls. Known for generations as THE saddle to start your young equestrian in. So well balanced and secure, it places young riders in the proper seat. This saddle is a find. The German made models are hard to come by. Still in incredible condition with only some minor blemishes to the cantle. Wool flocked panels are even and soft. The underside is free of cracking and all the leather is still soft and supple. The billets are in supurb condition. The saddle measure a true 15 inches, not 15 1/2" or 15 3/4". Lots more photos by request.
$568. Item# BL-4-101
"If you would have only one day to live, you should spend at least half of it in the saddle."
Rick's usually has several available in the used saddle section. I don't know if shipping and such would be an issue to Canada though. There are tons of them around, I'm sure it won't be hard to locate one up there.
Thank you for thinking of me ETBW They are nice little saddles, but as with every Stubben, you have to consider the shape of the child going into it. A tall skinny child, or a child with a weight normal for height will likely do well in a Rex. Chubby short legged kids may be put in a 'chair' seat that they cannot achieve forward balance in.
Like every Stubben they will have the serial number and tree width stamped on the original girth guard. If that's lost, you still might find a mark on the stirrup bar.
