    Default Saddle recommendations for flat back and long sloping wither

    Any recommendations for saddles that have trees matching this type of back/topline? I am looking to buy new or used up to about $2000.

    Boomer (warmblood looking TB) had a great big wither and a table back.

    His wither was M but his back was a W.

    I bought the Vega in a W and made a home made gusset. Works great.

    You can find them used these days.
    Horses are amazing athletes and make no mistake -- they are the stars of the show!

    suprisingly the Circuit Dressage. Flocked with decent wool as well. And has th v billet system that helps keep a saddle from sliding forward the way they like to on my mare with this build. Nice saddle for the price point once broken in.
