You probably know my grey by now as I have posted quite a few times about him!
But for those of you that don't a brief tale....
He is a 5yr old (on August 26th), Han x Irish TB, he was a rescue as a foal and has always struggled to hold weight while he keeps on growing! I think he has slowed and almost stopped growing now at 16hands. He has large whithers and a huge shoulder, but very little weight on his back and bottom, and has absolutely no 2nd thigh on his hind legs at all, and he simply pulls himself forward with his huge front end!
Anyway I have been waiting to get a saddle made for him once he had slowed down the growth spurts. I had a saddler come out to him and we tried a few on a had him measured etc for you normal english jumping flocked type! After much talking about how he doesnt stay the same shape for more than a few months, and is a boney Tb in the winter and a chunky hanoverian in the spring/summer she mentioned the Bates Caprilli interchangable gullet with cair system??
She said that it would change with him and will allow for him to grow and grow with him rather than buying a new saddle each time he changes (he really does change that much!!)
What do you all think?? Good idea for the time being?? They are so expensive so I want to make the right decision!
This is the one im after -
Thank you in advance!
