Does anyone know of Canadian websites that carry monoflap saddles in the 1500-2500$? Used is fine. So sick of trying to deal with customs and shipping is astronomical from the states, especially if just to try the saddle. Thanks!
If you like the Equipe Expression saddle, the manufacturer does offer monoflap versions in this saddle "family".
Equi-Products does a lot of Equipe saddles so you might contact their saddle fitter
The Equipe Expression is a very nice saddle at that price point (definitely ask about used as well).
My experience with Heartland was that they really only want to sell saddles within a certain geographical area - I could book a barn appointment with the fitter (at a cost of several hundred $$ as I'm not on her usual trip circuit) but could not actually speak with her prior to the booked appointment to confirm that she would be able to bring any "likely to fit" saddles, nor was the person I was allowed to speak with willing to offer any opinion as to what demo saddles (if any) were available in a wide tree ... it was a very odd experience.
(this was so bizarre that I confirmed this on 3 separate occasions over the course of a year - Heartland offers a nice selection of saddles online which is why I kept repeating my actions hoping for a different outcome )
I love my Equipe- Janice at Saddle Solutions did a great job of finding something that would fit me and my princess of a horse. I think Equi-Products fitter Donna is working with Black Country and possibly Hastilow and they both do mono-flap styles. I wouldn't recommend Heartland- too many people I know have had bad experiences waiting months and months for custom saddles to arrive to not have them work out.
