My new horse Milly has a very strange back/withers and I've found out that most of her behavioral problems most likely stem from the fact that most saddles wont fit her. I brought in pics and a wither tracing to the tack shop, and we were able to find a saddle that was in my price range (sorta lol) that will fit Milly perfect. However its synthetic and I've always heard bad things about synthetic. I really trust the lady I go to and she assures me that its a great saddle, but I wanted to double check on here and get opinions.
This is the same saddle I'm getting. 16" Big Horn Brown Cordura Gaited Horse Saddle High Withers 257
I have the saddle right and can ride in it for two weeks before I decide if I want to buy it. The owner of the shop says since she knows me and the budget I'm on, and due to the fact that the saddle wont fit most horses, she'll sell me it for the whole sale price, which is $450. What do you think/is it a good deal and worth it?
