    According to their website, there aren't any sales reps in IL, but you may be able to connect with someone through the Yahoo group:

    After some research, I have concluded that it is in fact an older model specialized saddle. I found a site that sells new shimming materials, so that is awesome.

    Fitting Inserts - Specialized Saddles

    I have been watching some of the videos as to the hows and whys of fitting them. It doesn't look too difficult. I am looking to find someone to come and help with fitting, but endurance isn't exactly huge in northern IL and finding someone is proving difficult. I may end up with no choice but going it alone.

    I'm buying the saddle tomorrow. I am going to see if I can get it for $225 since it is missing the shims. I already know that I would have had to get knew ones anyway, but the shop owner is clueless, so I'll just make my position that way. Plus I have to buy a new cinch then. The one that looks nice to me is $100. As well as a new saddle pad which is in the range of $110 or so. We'll see. Maybe I'll hate trying to shim it and sell it. I'm so excited!!

    I'll do my best to hate it. Haha. Oh, that is cool! At least it is only $50 than the other one. That's my life now. I can say "Well I saved this much money on the saddle so I get to spend such and such amount on accessories." Not that ever stopped me before...

    You're still going to hate the saddle. Where's Joe4d when I need him? Tell her how terrible these saddles are now and how she should sell it!

    Lol I'm having a hard time with that mentality right now. I figure I found a saddle for $250, so I should get to spend all the money I COULD have spent on a saddle on other accessories and ride entries. Except... I didn't spend all that money on the saddle because I don't have it. Hahaha oh the difficulties of being a horse-lover.
