I agree Teekin, & we usually have done that!

I am beginning to think that he'll be getting a Albion Platinum Ultima Dressage saddle to use as a barrel saddle and that is final. He tried my friends on and it fits great. Of course, why wouldn't it with a price tag like that. I have tried three Billy Cooks since starting this thread, a few more Big horns, another Simco, a Charmayne james saddle and a few others. Still haven't found someone with a Tucker or a Tucker that I've wanted/been able to buy.

Everything that is big enough is almost to big or is to big and tips down towards his shoulders after sliding back. Things that appear to fit, don't, after you ride him. Its a mystery.

I ordered a Triple Creek saddle in the beginning of MAY that still isn't here. I cannot wait to try that on, see that it doesn't fit and sell it at a loss. If that does not work for him then I am done trying Western saddles all together.

Albion. Ok it is your money and your to spend how you like. I would ask you to consider this. When Judy and I shut down Riverbend the clients had to find other stables. One of the places they went had a history of breaking down horses as they rode them very hard and rushed the training. What they told the people who went there was that the saddles they had ( various German, French and customs) were terrible and they needed to by Albions. ( groan) Well one horse is now 6' under, the new horse is so sore he is dangerous, 2 are so sore as to be unridable and the one I sold I have been told to not even visit as he is damaged beyond even my ability to repair.
All the Albions are now for sale and Forester is the new flavor of the month. Before Albion it was the Danny K Freedom, and now those you can't give away. Meanwhile the good solid brands like my old hand made Passier GG, Passier GT, and Schleese all have held their value. Why do you see SO many Albions for sale just 2-3 years after being bought for 4K? While the Passiers, Jaguers, Schleese all are with thier owners until they change horses or get out of horses?

Please see if you can get ahold of a Eamor to try. They are very rare and pricey because once someone finds one they Never want to sell them. Perhaps THE best made most versitile western saddle ever made. This saddle was made to ride the Rocky mountains in Northwest America and Canada pushing cattle. It is 100% functional comfort for horse and rider, it is not a pretty saddle but you can ride in it for days and neither you or or horse will be sore.
