Get a new saddle or keep mine?
The saddle I have now is an HDR Advantage CC. It's a good saddle, it's done well for me for the past two years. The only complaint I have is that the flaps are slightly forward for me, I have short upper legs :P
My horse lost quite a bit of weight and muscle mass during the winter from a few months of stall rest and just having the whole winter off. So, as of now, her saddle does not fit her. It was never a perfect fit, but it REALLY doesn't fit her now.
So now I'm trying to decide if I want to sell my current saddle and get one that fits both her and me. The only problem is that I am limited by what I can get from my current saddle. I wish I could afford a super nice saddle, but I really can't. I am not 100% how much my saddle could sell for, but I'm thinking I could get between 300-450. What kind of saddle could I get for that? It definitely does NOT have to be new!
I'm open to both leather and synthetic. I will be showing Dasha eventually, but not in huge shows (I won't be able to afford it!). So yeah, suggestions are appreciated!
