Yeah, I doubt the Vegas are easily adjusted. They're a synthetic polyamide tree with a stabilizing steel head iron. Not the sort of operation you'd want to be stretching.
I double checked the Amerigo 2012 cataligue, they list adjustable tempered steel plate gullet for all their Vega models (I've had a couple of saddle fitters offer to adjust as well)
- but if your local fitter isn't comfortable with the idea, definitely don't go there!
So I have a Stubben Roxane coming on trial - partially because I am running out of time and really need to start actually RIDING in these saddles, and partially because it was a steal of a deal. We'll see. Anyone have experience with these?
Does the Amerigo Vega CC (Dual flap) have as forward of a flap as the Amerigo Vega monoflap?
Found one for a steal on eBay, and I'm thinking this Stubben isn't going to work out. It's OK, and I could ride in it if I have to, but it's not one that I absolutely love. Too deep-seated for my taste.
If you want to explore the Vegas/Amerigos and other forward-balance saddles, chat w/Ann Forrest at www.equestrianimports.com. Excellent fitter both hands-on and long distance, and carries these saddles.
