I posted a few months ago when I was on the hunt for a new saddle, and I thought I found the deal of a lifetime. I got a Circle Y saddle that had the rear cinch and breast collar, for only $500! Usually its hard to find the saddle alone for that price, but of course it was too good to be true
The saddle fits me like a glove, but does not fit my horse well at all. I got the diamond wool pressure relief pad, and it improved the fit in the front of the saddle, but caused all sorts of problems in the back. It ended up making him very sore and he had to take a week off. So I am back in the market, and I decided I need to invest into a saddle that fits my boy, Partner, right. I have been looking at the Stray Dog Cutting saddles, the Roohide Brumby, and Continental saddlery. I know they are completely different types of saddles, but I just need a nice saddle that I can do a little bit of everything in. I think Continental saddlery has the cutting horse style available too, not 100% sure.
