    Buying English saddle and related equipment.

    Alright I have a list of what I will be purchasing at some point in the future form SmartPak. I plan to take advantage of their "Test Run" program. That way if the saddle doesn't work out I can find another! I want it to fit as well as possible.

    Okay, so here goes:

    Wintec 500 All Purpose Saddle: I'm going with the flocked panels and not the CAIR. It comes with the Easy Change Gullet System as well.

    SmartPak Fleece Girth

    Fillis Stirrup Irons: I'm not sure what size I need?

    Wintec Slimline Stirrup Straps: Also not sure on length here..?

    SmartPak Medium Diamond AP: GREEN, going to go great with my shaggy black monster!

    Now am I missing anything that I need?? I really am new to the English discipline so I am willing to take any advice!

    Side note: I have looked for a saddle fitter.. and I literally kid you not, can not find one in the area of Kansas I am located.

    You may not find a fitter in your area but they usually travel and come through on there way to a more populated area.

    Stirrups: You can measure your foot in your boots & then give yourself some wiggle room on the sides - like 1/4in I believe. Average size is 4.75. If you expect other people to ve riding in your saddle or wearing wide boots I'd go with the norm.

    Stirrup Leathers - I've only ever had the option for 54" adult leathers.
