Looking for saddle recommendations (jumping/event saddle) for high withered TB
I'd like to hear from you other TB owners out there in regards to what brand of saddle fits your horse well. I've got a 16.2+ TB gelding that's narrow and high withered. I've got a Bates Caprelli for jumping & a Bates Isabell for dressage both with the changeable gullet system. Because of the cut of the dressage saddle it fits him really well but my jumping saddle isn't great; no matter how narrow of a gullet I use I just can't get it high enough for his withers. It fits ok with an Ogilvy half pad but over time I'm worried it could cause an issue so I'm looking for a couple brands of saddles that have worked for other owners of withery horses. I'm looking for recommendations on jumping or event saddles.
I do have a saddle fitter coming out to fit him but she can't come for another 2 weeks because she's busy at the Masters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and then she's got a back log of appts. I wanted to do a bit of research on my own in preparation for the appt.
Thanks in advance for all your information and assistance, my horse & I greatly apreciate it! :-D
