Buying Tack at Equine Affaire
I attend the Equine Affaire every year in Massachusetts. I ride western and getting a new saddle is long overdue. My local tack shops don't have a great selection and special ordering saddles means that you have to buy it, and if you don't like it/it doesn't fit - tough luck.
My question is, has anyone ever bought a saddle at EA? If so, from which vendor? Do they have good return policies? I live in Vermont, so I wouldn't be able to try the saddle on my horse for a few days, but I know his general measurements. Thanks!
