Hello everyone. My name is Kim and i've just bought a Haflinger mare. She is a little round and has absolutely non existant withers! This is causing me massive problems in finding a saddle that will fit her. I did buy an aparently Haflinger saddle, aparently a wide fit, but on her the pommel and opening were much much too high.
So maybe I need an extra wide!
I've looked in many places and have found that the only ones that are likely to fit and aren't bank breakable are synthetic ones.
Yes i'm old fashioned, I think leather is better, but am I right?
This is my first horse and I know littel about buying saddles, although i'm learning fast! Any help would be greatly apreciated.
I can't get to a saddlery as I live in the mountains.
Many thanks in advance.
