I love my new Courbette Primera saddle, so I completely understand.

When you are sitting a top a horse, you are that much closer to God.

Haha, I like Tackaholics Anonymous. I'm not that bad, though. In fact, I'm very cheap, so I have a hard time buying new tack, lol, and only have what I need. there's a lot that I'd buy if I didn't have other obligations, though.

Haha, I went through and read every single post on that thread! I loved it. Made me want to go tack shopping... Maybe I should just buy a second saddle and keep the frustrating horse... It would be an excellent excuse to get more tack!

I don't have any pictures yet, but I'll try to get them soon. In the meantime, here is the background story:

I live in the middle of nowhere, so finding and trying out english saddles or finding a saddle fitter is rare to none. I had to find a saddle with a small seat for my small butt, and a very forward flap for my oddly long upper leg. I wanted quality, but I had a limited amount of funds, so I was looking at used saddles. I found a Jeffries Flyover Monoflap on ebay for $600. I love mono flaps, the saddle had a small seat and forward flap, and was a killer deal! Of course I kept my horse in mind. She's a warmblood, but looks more like a thoroughbred. I contacted the seller, and the seller said it had a medium tree, and she used it on her thoroughbreds. I figured it'd work and took a chance.

The pannels are stuffed nice, and it leaves clearance above her whithers. There's also a wide channel for plenty of spine clearance. However, it seems too wide on the sides of her whithers. Also, the saddle has a tendency to slip forward onto her shoulders. I tried it with a whither relief half pad to give more bulk in the front which seemed to help, but of course a pad isn't going to solve the real problem.

Here is a picture of it I stole off a website:


The funny thing is, it's pretty ugly in the picture! But it's SOOOO comfortable, and fun to ride in! I feel so much more secure when I'm jumping, and I feel like my dressage is better because I can really feel the horse under me :) Not that I'm really using it as a dressage saddle, but when I'm just schooling on the flat it's fun to use!

I have a saddle that I just love,well love doesnt describe the feelings I have for it, I also have a horse that pushes my buttons regularly. The lovely saddle doesnt fit the bratty mare, I have been known to stroke the beautiful saddle whisper sweet things to it like "dont worry we will sell that flat withered brat and buy a suitable mount for you my lovely saddle."
