After some research, calling some people, stalking some people, borrowing some tack, and finding a saddle fitter who will make sure I'm not causing my horse too much pain with my purchase (thought he didn't have samples for me to trial... Darn), I've come to the fun part. Finding the particular saddle I need.
This is where I get overwhelmed.
I have a few absolutes: 1.) My price range is $1000 to $2000; go ahead and recommend if it's a bit more, because I have Ebay powers, 2.) A reputation for fitting horses well and being comfortable, 3.) Quality; has to told up to a lot of wear and years of use.
Pretty standard stuff.
Any recommendations or tips? Also, it seat sizing the same as APs? I have a 17.5 inch AP saddle, a Wintec.
