    Have you taken a look at any used saddles? I used to check endurance.net classified back when I was looking to buy.
    I always liked the look of the Sharon Saare's. Their fitting system is very specific as well. Home page The Synergists also have a very specific fitting system. I liked the Desoto too because of the specific fitting but I thought the angles too flat so it may be more to your liking.
    The Long Rider's Guild has a nice equipment information page with comments from folks riding long distance. Plus it's just an interesting site with great stories, if you haven't perused it already. Hope it's ok to post other web sites here
    Those are just a few that I looked at for a custom fit type tree. I'm sure there are many more. Good luck in your search, hope you find that perfect fit. It is out there

    Well everybody is riding this weekend, lots of big races going on, Tevis, Vermont, umm at least one other 100 somewhere.
    Oh I keep my eyes open, but very rare to find a 17" used. Im leaning towards stonewall or specialized.

    Sounds like you know what you need.

    I always thought the Tucker measurement system was a bit different because of the 1/2 sizes.

    The Stonewall Company is about a hour from me. I brought an Arab to her for measuring. Jackie is really nice and knowledgeable. I did not get her saddle because I ended up not keeping that horse. The saddle is very basic. It was comfortable, and truely the lightest saddle out there. I don't particularly care for the rigging. But very nicely made saddle.

    What did it weigh?

    Just looked it up on the ebay link:

    Q: What is the weight of this saddle? Thankyou
    A: Hi, sorry for my tardy response. This saddle weighs 15 lbs.

    I see its at the dealer, interesting, but only a couple hundred cheaper than new, guess its me Id pay 1600 new with the warranty and fit guarantee before I would pay 1400 for a used one. We shall see, sister is riding horse this evening. See how it goes.

    I trained with a family that used Stonewalls, I rode one a couple of times, and really liked it. You sound like my DH in the saddle preferences, and he liked the Tucker, but I don't need that expensive saddle sitting in the tack room, waiting for the 2 times a year he has time to ride. I ride almost every day, with close to 1000 endurance miles, in a $400 saddle. Obviously my riding parts are not as sensitive......

    Maybe if yo bought him a gel seat tucker he'd ride more often ? Im thinking stonewall. My sister like the horse, green but stayed on. Going to go test ride this weekend and if all is well bring him home. Stonewall seems to be coming out on top. Will ride him a bit in my Aussi trailmaster until he bulks up. Horse is underweight and under muscle.
