So, I have this lovely old brown leather Passier dressage saddle (I believe a Grand Gilbert) that fits Brock very well when he's fit, but currently he's rather padded (actually very fat) from having far too good a time on his spell and it doesn't fit. Now my first thought was to get a second saddle, a synthetic GP that has an adjustable gullet.
However, I did have a thought the other day - what about getting an exercise (trackwork) saddle? They're one-size-fits-all and I'm more comfortable dealing with Brock's antics in short stirrups where my knee/hip joints can absorb the 'acrobatics' and emergency dismounts are easier. Also, exercise saddles are super cheap and my partner will need one anyway for his work. However, Brock is VERY lazy and leg aids aren't all that easy in short stirrups - and not being an OTTB he doesn't get the whole weight forward/weight back stuff (I did try).
So tossing up at the moment - any ideas? :)
