Question Looking for Saddle Recommendations (english please) for Draft Cross


I'm currently riding my draft cross gelding (1/2 perch, 1/4 arab, 1/4 paint) in a Bates Caprelli for jumping and the new Bates Isabell for dressage. Both saddles have the adjustable gullet system. Mack will be 6 yts old this summer and I've got the XW gullet in both saddles and there is no wider gullet currently available from Bates. My trainer has told me that Mack will keep growing for the next 2 years and will definitely outgrow these 2 saddles....oh joy :roll:. I am interested in saddle recommendations from anyone out there with drafts or draft crosses. I would love to hear about good and bad experiences for both jumping and dressage saddles. Thanks in advance for any information you've got , much appreciated!

I included a picture of Mr Mack-aroni's big head not because it will help with saddle recommendations but because who here doesn't enjoy horse pictures?

Hi, I have a Friesian/Perch cross and I have a Duett All purpose that I love. They also make Dressage saddles. They run from about 850 up. I wish they made a western saddle, I'm trying to find a light one that I can lift up (no more than 30 pounds). The Duett is about 28 lbs. It has been comfortable since day one. I've had mine since 2004 and it is holding up very well.
