    Default Saddle Fitting Price and Suggestions (VA)

    I'm in Northern Virginia and I need to find a saddle fitter to come out. I'm good enough at saddle fitting that I usually do it on my own. I could tell my saddle was too wide for my TB, so I bought two MN saddles, but I don't like how they fit - so time to get someone out.

    What should I expect a basic saddle fitting to cost?

    Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on who to use?

    I have used William before and he was fantastic! (granted it has been nearly 4 years)

    He came out to check my saddle fit to my horse and while I was expecting to completely re-flock the wool, he moved it around and added some here and there to fit...for the travel and the flocking/exam it was under $100.

    I would look for someone with a tree machine, in case your saddle(s) can be adjusted to fit.
