I'm at a bit of a dilemma here. A couple months ago I purchased my first dressage saddle! I love it but I really need to get a saddle fitter out because it slides back a tad as I ride. Oh and... pretty embarrassing but I bought the saddle w/o even knowing the brand! It is quite nice, but does anyone know what brand DM is? It has a little horse head and a DM on the button on each side.. lol.
ANYWAY for my real question.. what are your thoughts on saddles for jumping if I am going to do lower level eventing for a few years and do not want to buy 3 different saddles. I mean, I know almost everyone except the pros do not own 3 saddles, but that is basically ideal, right?
SO. I'm in need of a new jumping saddle and need suggestions.
Should I get a cross country specific saddle or just a close contact jumping saddle? Differences? Pros/Cons for SJ and CC?
And then obviously let me know what saddles you love! (That are moderately priced!... Up to $1,000 I'd say.)
