I was using Peirce County Vet but then needed a different vet for a PPE (just so happened the lady I bought my gelding from used the same vet) so I used Stillwater and I liked them a lot so I stuck with them. Good thing I did, too because I ended up needing a lameness eval on him and I guess Stillwater is like THE vet for lameness issues.

I need a 17" seat but could deal with an 18". And I need like a medium or medium/narrow gullet.

Yes, Stillwater vet is the best around for special things especially lameness which is why I can't afford them lol. My vet came from there long ago so he knows his stuff, just doesn't have the hospital.

I will keep on the lookout, a medium-medium narrow is much easier to find. I need a medium wide-wide so I search through a lot of adds.

Yeah. I'm like sitting here staring at it trying to decide and praying no one buys it. Lol I feel like that's a pretty low price for what you're getting...

It looks like the billets may have been replaced?

Since you're near Minneapolis... I just bought a saddle from St. Croix Saddlery and they're in that area (bought it over the internet, not from their store). It looks like they have several AP saddles that might work in the price range you're looking in.
