Do you have a horse or you plan on using a lesson horse? If its your own horse you want to make sure saddle will fit it. If you are using lesson horse ask the trainer because not all barns allow to use own saddle (again it may not fit). I've heard nice things about crosby but personally never tried one myself.
You best bet would be to deal with the store (or private sale), which allows returns. So if it wouldn't fit (which is pretty often a case, especially with the funny-shaped horses) you could return it back. Good luck!
