I may have the opportunity to purchase one of these.
I've looked up on line what they look like, and they are very similar to medieval saddles. I'm working towards riding with my local SCA (medieval group) and this saddle would certainly make the outfit look authentic!
Does anyone have any personal experience with these saddles? From my research it looks like a high pommel and cantle, sitting you deep into the cushioned seat with a "chair seat" style.
I would like to know how to size one for a Quarter Horse (slight build, needs a narrower gullet, WP breeding, around 14.2hh) and to me. I take a 16" in a western saddle.
Any stories about one? How comfortable (or uncomfortable) it is, the fit, is it comfortable for a horse, for long rides, for games?
Anything I should watch out for? Any idea what the general pricing on these are?
Thanks in advance
