Thank you! Yes, well, since I don't have a horse yet ( :( ) I can't really tell you the exact measurements. I will probably end up having a western and an english saddle, since I do ride both. What I look for is comfort for both horse and rider, durability, fairly easy maintenance, quality and fairly light-weight (can be a little heavier, but I should still be able to lift it ;) ). I love trail riding, so a saddle for trails that can also allow for some small jumps (you never know when a log decides to block your way...). I do really like western saddles. They should have one with an attachable horn
As far as price goes, I don't have a range right now (any range I would give my husband might differ from ;) ). I want a quality saddle, but I also don't won't to pay for overprized equipment. In the 500 would be a great medium, but I am willing to consider more (and less ;) ).
So if you can just name a good saddle and saddle brand and good retailers that would help, so I know what to look for once I get the horse :)
