My Pathfinder saddle was made by keithbryansaddlery.com
but his website is down. His phone number is OO441 922 628325 HIS FAX (YES!!) is on the same number. He is a true old fashioned saddle maker.
He makes saddles for British cavalry officers.
For you to window shop in, I suggest www.classicsaddlerywalsall.co.uk
My last saddle came from The Ideal Saddle Co UK - their "Jessica" might suit you. Do a Google search.
But beware we Brits see the saddle as a lot more important than I get the impression is the situation in the US. Here, you buy the horse, then the fitter comes to select and fit
the saddle. The saddle is chosen by cut
( ie GP, Jumping, dressage) 'length'
ie 17 inch ( relevant to the rider's butt) and the length of the horse's back then 'width'
- ie the shape of the horse back behind the wither. Sizes start as Standard, wide, extra wide, cob, etc ete
The saddle especially for dressage is the key item of tack and the proper fitting saddle puts the rider in the correct position for dressage riding.
As an idea of what is available by post from the UK look up www.rideaway.co.uk
. But you don't buy a saddle by mail order.
And we pay the price - my Pathfinder cost around $1600 and the most recent Ideal saddle (a Grandee) for DiDi was closer to $1800. The Germans pay even more.
I would never dream of using a second hand saddle without first having a saddle fitter check in person
that the saddle fitted the horse's back.
Getting the right saddle is a serious business, get the fitting wrong and all sorts of problems develop with the horse's back and the rider's seat.
PS I am not going to confess how much DiDi (the horse) cost in dollars. You'd think I bought a herd.
