Cheaper Dressage saddles for low level eventing?

Hello! I am new here, I have a OTTB rescue named Mary, I was wondering what everyone has for eventing, the Dressage part. I am going to learn Dressage. So, I am not a fan of Wintec... Hate it acutally... Sorry >.<... Lawl. So, Suggestions? Also, This is my **RESCUE** mare a month after I got her. Please note, I am not putting this up for y'all to critique her. I know she was skinny and Ewhhh back then.

Your best bet is going to be to buy used. I have a synthetic dressage saddle for sale if you're interested. It fits both of my TBs but is too small for me. The seat measures 15.5/16" from cantle to button.

Have you looked at the Thorowgood T8 dressage saddle? Trumbull Mountain tack shop in Vermont sells them. They are wool flocked, under $1,000 and are very well balanced. They sell a synthetic model, the T4 (Dover has them) for about $300 less. Much nicer than the Wintecs.

Try everything under the sun till you find what works for you and your horse. I am a fan of the t4 as well... but I wouldn't pass up a decent priced wintec. When your saddle of choice has been an old school Stubben, everything else is like riding a couch.

I am currently riding in a Harry Dabbs Euro, which is ok, fits my horse, but I'm looking for a saddle with an adjustable tree.

To be honest you don't really need a dressage saddle till you hit Training/Prelim. At that point the dressage is mostly training level equivalent and can be done under normal english tack.

You should really look into buying a used saddle. You can save money there, and get a better saddle than buying a cheap new one. If you buy used make sure to check if the saddle needs re-flocked. (You can do this by squishing the back panels. If they feel like rocks that will be uncomfortable for your horse's back and you should see a saddle fitter.)
