Any other information that will be helpful in my search (rather passive at the moment as it will probably be a good 2-3 years before she will be anywhere close to me).
I had a custom built saddle for my pony. I got a Luc Childeric for her and I loved the saddle and so did she, until it got too small for her,
She got a lot more muscles than we thought she would, so I had to sell the saddle, and by a new one...
It's quite expensive and it took at least 8 weeks for the saddle to be made and delivered to me.
But when you finally get the saddle, what an amazing feeling!
I'm going to order a custom saddle as soon as we're back on track again. (She's preggers now...)
