Anyone able to give me their thoughts on how this M. Toulouse fits my mare? It's the Aachen model, Wide tree. I think it looks pretty good, but I'm no expert. I rode in it and she went fairly well, but she was in a bit of a mood today (before I even tacked her up). Going to ride her in it a couple more times before I make a decision. My budget is under 1K so options are pretty limited, but if anyone has other suggestions I'm open to them!
Ungirthed place pressure on the pommel and watch the back
also place pressure on the cantle and look for movement in the front. There should be little movement. It does look placed a little to far up on shoulders.
In photo 4 you can see the pads of the saddle. I personally don't care for pads shaped like that. I like them a little wider and flatter but with lots of cushion. That's just what works for my horse.
