Stubben or Kieffer?
I was looking for a cheap dressage saddle, and I found a wonderful website with used dressage saddles for very cheap. The two cheapest that I likes the most were a Stubben and a Kieffer Munchen.
I usually ride in a 14 inch Western saddle, and I wasn't really sure what size to get for an English saddle. The Stubben is 17.5" and the Kieffer is 16.5", and it has a narrow tree. The website says the Stubben has a 31 cm tree, what does that mean?
For the narrow tree, what differences does that make in fit? I know it wouldn't fit wider horses, but what horses would it fit?
I'll attach images of the saddles as posts in this thread.
