    Default Looks like I am in the market for a new saddle :( advice needed...

    For years I lusted after the BDH saddle that Dover used to sell. I was never in a position to get a new one and when I finally was I was upset to find out they no longer were being sold. Right after my mare turned 3 I stumbled across a used BDH in my area for a FABULOUS price so I snatched it up. Now my mare is a 4 and has significantly filled out and my BDH does not fit....not even close. So now I need recommendations for a new saddle. I am not opposed to a used saddle in good condition. My budget max is $1500, but I would be much more comfortable around $1000. I haven't a clue where to start so suggestions are very appreciated! Here is a picture of her for reference to her body type.

    I was recently looking for a friend (she is looking for a similar saddle). I found this excellent site. It seems to have all kinds of stuff. There are some gorgeous Beval saddles on there in your price range is an excellent one but a bit more pricey. As is the CWD Used saddle Page.

    I am in the same boat as you-current saddle is too narrow for my big guy, and I have a small budget!

    If you want to share your size and spprox. gullet, I can keep an eye out!
