I am going to start dressage lessons soon..
I have been primarily western, and my western saddle was never anything special was just a hand me down from my first horse.
I have an English saddle my mother got me years ago that is getting sent to me. I don't know what brand it is yet.
Anyway, I want to know a decent English saddle brand. I found one at my local tack store it's a a wintec 2000 priced at 649.99 I kinda liked the look of it, it's black with suede seat.
And the second one is a wintec all purpose. I've tried to find some used ones but my size is 15 3/4 - 16. That one is 429.99
I can't find too many decent looking used saddles in this size.
My local tack store primarily carries the wintec.
But, I'm in Seattle almost every weekend so I could go to larger tack store if I had a better idea of what I'm looking for...
I will be meeting with my dressage trainer but I wanted more than one suggestion.
Edit- I also have a freeform treeless saddle, but I'm kind of thinking I want a traditional saddle to train in.
