Here is what I know I want/need:
1.) English or english-style saddle, with a tree
2.) Trail or Dressage (not close contact or all purpose) - use will be for trails and endurance when weather permits and dressage and light jumping (2 ft -2ft 3in) when riding indoor
3. Security and comfort without being restricting
I know saddle preference is individual. I guess I am just looking for suggestions on where to begin. There is a Wintec Isabell that my BO has and is going to let me try. I have to change the gullet because it is too narrow with the one in it.
So how do I start? Are certain styles or brands recommended? Every saddle looks very nice online/catalogue and it is hard to tell the minor differences. I also know that fit changes and I may buy one now an dneed to alter or sell it later, but I don't want to buy the first saddle I sit in and like without wosely shopping around. That is how I got my current sadle.
