I'm so excited! I received a pretty decent bonus from work so I have enough to treat myself to a new saddle (which may be a new-to-me used saddle if I find the right one).
I want an AP saddle for my big draft cross Jake. He's a big wide guy so this may be a bit of a challenge. I plan to use iride's most excellent stickie info about measuring for a saddle and then head off to the local tack shop to see what works. Currently we either ride him bareback or in a western saddle. But as I ride English...
But, in advance, I was wondering from all of those who own horses of the extra wide persuasion, what your favourite saddle is and why? I'm not looking to spend more than 1k since I only ride for pleasure but could go higher to find the right one for the both of us.
Thanks y'all for your input!
