Albion saddles?

Anybody have any thoughts on the albion saddles? Particularly if they fit horse with high withers, or in my case, a dip right behind the withers?

I am looking at the albion legend. I like that it has a hoop shaped tree, just not sure about how it would fit.

They are nice! While wasn't a particular good fit for my horse it had a nice clearance for the withers. They are pricey too...

I found one for 600 because it has "kitty damage." I really like the hoop tree that it has, I think that would be good for his shoulders, just not sure how curvy the tree actually is.

My Albion had "kitty damage" as well. Just a scrape on the flap that is completely covered up by my leg when I'm on and is barely noticeable when nicely oiled.

Love my Albion Legend. Wouldn't trade it!

Albion was on list of suggestions from my saddle fitter while back. But the one I tried was too narrow unfortunately. $600 for Albion is not bad at all! I was looking at dressage saddles and they were all over $1K.

Okay, well this one is a wide tree and I have read in what little info I have been able to find on the albions that the trees tend to run on the larger side. Hopefully mine isn't too wide! I just made an offer on it. Waiting to hear back!

Can you return it if it doesn't fit?? I HOPE it does, but you just never know...
