Those are some seriously good prices, either saddle is a bargain. As to fit, it is always a lottery and if you don't have your own horse why would you buy anyway?? I can never understand that one, it is like going and buying a nice pair of shoes as a present for a friend that you haven't even met yet, the chances of them fitting are 1000's to one.
If you set on having your own, then ask who ever the tb belongs to what saddle fitting she has, if she has a branded saddle and you look all over it you should be able to find the model and fit details, then you can talk to St Croix and they will give you best guess. Or you could do this
With her saddle, if it fits, and send that off, then you will shorten your odds considerably.
I'd still wait, but at those prices it IS a great deal
One of the reasons I want to get my own saddle is because I do Western but I do like riding in an English saddle (more freedom of movement). I'll have to ask the BO.
Thank you again!
