Adjustabke Western Saddle

Are there any Western saddles that are adjustable like the Wintec, Bates, and Collegiate English saddles?

Have you looked into specialized saddles?

In the link i posted- it says theyre havin troubles with the adjustable western saddles..

If youre gonna trainin a lot of horses----- whats the breed youll be trainin most of? (Sorry just assume youll be trainin if you need one saddle to fit many different horses) --what will you be riding mostly (breed) ?
Pads can do a number of things if properly placed- i know it dont make up for a saddle that dont fit- but it can make one fit a lot better than it did.

specialized are adjustable, but you can buy a couple different decent saddles for the same price.

Buy a top quality saddle with a rawhide covered wooden tree. The wood is chosen for it's strength and a bit of flexibility. The rawhide protects it the wood from high humidity, bugs, low humidity, etc. A top notch saddle will work with a variety of horses. I have one that was used on a 16.1hh mutton withered 1300lb horse or an 800 lb low withered arab that stood 14.2. As for the adjustable, I'd like to see it on the market for a good 5 years before putting out $5000. That money would buy you a might fine custom saddle and then some.

Since Specialized saddles don't seem to be well known: Specialized Saddles

I'm thinking of something more for training horses, rather than fitting one hard to fit horse. The breeds may range from QH to Arabians.
