Look at Syd Hill synthetic stock saddles. They are lightweight and soo comfy. I feel super secure in mine and don't often ride a horse that I'm not familiar with in any other kind. They also have an easy change gullet system and girth up similarly to an English saddle. One of the Syd Hill stock saddles is an investment that will last a lifetime.

I heard Syd Hill is no longer making stock saddles. There are still a few new ones around, but they are not making more.

I have a wintec Aussie with the interchangable gullet it fit my Morgan and my stocky paint cross both when she was Skinny & Extra Fat with only a change in gullet & girth size. I can use a standard dressage pad just fine, and do if I am trying to "dress up." But I prefer my Skito pad even if it is lime green!

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

How much Sketchy?? And gullet size/saddle size? Where are you in the US?

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

$400 with 30" girth, wool navajo print pad, & diamond wool underpad. It's a medium. Since it's a Kimberly you can send it to downunder for a custom wither tracing. 17" seat. I'm in northern IL.

Holy cow for my saddle today, it looks HUGE!! I ordered a 17, that's what they recommended for me, I usually ride in a 17 1/2 dressage saddle. Lol does it just seem huge because I'm used to little english saddles? Going to try it on dexter tonight, hopefully he likes it! Last synthetic saddle i tried on him he kinda freaked out about lol i guess because it smells different, hes silly.

No, it should definitely fit (though I thought mine looked huge too!) I think just because it's a bit bulkier in general than a Dressage saddle it looks big. Also we need pictures ASAP!

pics! I'm not entirely sure about the fit, it just seems so poofy at the back and was hard for me to slide my hand under it with the pad on. I sent them in a custom wither tracing, wondering if I need to send it back :( I just lunged him in it and he didn't seem bothered by it.
