So I am looking for a new to me (most likely used) event or all purpose saddle for my OTTB. I have a prestige right now but it hasnt been fitting well like it used to and it certainly doesnt fit me.
Unfortunately I am in an area of the NE USA that doesn't seem to have a lot going on as far as saddle dealers. I went to the tack shop and asked if they knew of anyone who could bring saddles to try on my horse who was also a good fitter and she basically said find a big show to go to and ask there. Any ideas about what I could do to find a saddle? I don't have a trainer or anything so Im kind of on my own in that respect. I could always buy one I think is good and then have a saddle fitter out but I feel like that would be a waste of time/money since I am only able to recognize REALLY DOES NOT FIT and not minor details.
How did you guys approach buying a new to you saddle??
Thanks for you help.
