    I'd personally wait until the horse arrives. So that you can get it fitted...I mean, I wouldn't want to buy a saddle & then have to take it back if it doesn't fit the horse...I think getting the saddle afterwards is best.

    That, IMO, would be the same as putting the cart before the horse. Not a good Idea. If you have my luck you will be looking for a QH and the perfect Arab or Tb sor Whatever will pop up and that will be the horse of your dreams... lol... I'd wait.

    No I wouldn't do it. I know it can be nerve racking to know you are going to be getting a horse soon and you want to get as many things as you can. Helps take the gitters down to go shopping ;)

    Each horse has such a different conformation from another one of even the same breed that I would really discourage buying a saddle before the horse. It is a very significant amount of money to spend therefor should be done properly.

    When you say near future, how soon do you think you are going to be getting one? What breed?

    I would wait till you got your horse if I were you. That way you can get a nice quality leather one! And if need be you can take the horse to the tack shop and fit her there lol I say definitely wait

    DON'T DO IT!! I bought a Stubben English saddle because it fit my backside perfectly and I LOVED it! Unfortunately it didn't fit my horse so well and I ended up having to sell it on ebay...I lost about $500 before it was over.
