Saddle You USe on Your Haflinger

Hi I'm currently looking for saddles for my 13.3 haflinger. He's quite rotund and flat backed. But its difficult fitting a saddle to him because his back is so short and I am a 17". I am looking into Treeless. What brands do you use on your Haflinger and what discipline as well? Thanks for all your info!

I just use a synthetic Abetta (so?) Trail saddle. I usually ride bareback, but I occasionally use it, and have never had any pain issues or uneven sweat marks or dry spots. Also used it on my full Haffie mare and never had problems.

Just bought this saddle for my 15.2 Haflinger gelding. Fits him perfectly and I was able to pick the color of the saddle and the seat style. I ride western and mainly trails whenever the weather allows.

Yes, he is much bigger then your average haffy but I love him like that. I think I would look like a giant on him if he were smaller.

I use a Wintec Wide GP for hacking, jumping and XC.

And a Thorowgood Cob dressage saddle for flatwork and dressage.

The GP after a hack standing on a slope.

And a closer shot

Have used Wintecs...Too long for his short Haffy back :(

A lesson stable with four haflingers uses thorowgoods and wintecs, both english and western. The english are all Ap style, the western are both pleasure and barrel kinds.

You can buy a 15" which fits most ponies. Mine is 17.5". I can't believe a 15" would be too long, but it may not fit an adult rider.
