But at $1300, you'd be hard pressed to do better.

    Melissa.Hare.Jones, Equus Now's clearance saddles at $1295 all have either the Standard panels or the Corto panels. There are no Alto panels in the bunch.
    this is the one i'm looking at and it has the gussets in the front and says it's a standard panel:

    Make sure you sit in her brand-new design----I'm having one made for my OTTB, having ridden in one earlier this month. So delicious! And affordable!
    for reference, if you don't mind, would you define "affordable" in this instance?

    There are some used dressage online for $1300 - $1600, I suspect new start ~ 3K but why not just drop by Lemke Saddles - it seems she offers both new & used & could easily send you a price list

    i'll be checking out her saddles tomorrow at the NW Horse Fair so that will be better than just a price list.

    omg ladies - my fiance and i stopped and talked to Sheryl from Lemke saddles for an hour yesterday. i showed her the pictures of my horse and explained my concerns and how the saddles we've tried so far fit or didn't fit as the case may be. she is WONDERFUL and i fully intend on saving the $ to have a saddle made for my horse. i'll probably have a saddle made for my youngest horse next year as well.

    thank you so much to those that recommended Lemke saddles. i'm so happy!!
