Things have changed, and now I need a dressage saddle!

Hi guys! Ah, I haven't been on here for a long time... Life's been busy! Basically, my little Envi is finally growing up, and, consequently, he needs his own saddle. I will be doing dressage with him, and am currently looking at used dressage saddles. The problem is that I have no idea what I am or should be looking at... So, here's my major question:
What brands of saddles tend to fit arabians better? Envi has small withers and a rounded arabian middle, which seems to be a bit harder to fit- narrow in the front and wide in the back, basically, and SMALL. He's tiny.
My overall goal is to get a saddle fitter out for both me and him, but for right now, I'd really just like to have a decent idea of what direction I should be going in. I'd like to have a bit of a better understanding of the different brands and their intricacies, as I know absolutely nothing about this. So, any bit of information is appreciated! Thank you, I am super excited to be starting this adventure with my boy!
