Training Saddle

Hello! So, I have a training saddle that used to fit my horse really well. He's very wide. Now that he's been working A LOT harder and has changed shape, his saddle doesnt fit :(. So, I am am just wondering, what kind of training saddles do you guys ride in? I'd like to know the brands. I don't really want to spend any more that 1500.

Since the tree no longer fits him you'll have to find a saddle with a tree that does. Will the horse remain this fit over the winter or will you have to go back to the saddle you've been using?

You probably need a full quarter horse bar. The wengers are nice.

My Circle Y WP show saddle, and my trainers Billy Cook reiner both fit my tanker of a horse really nicely.

The Circle Y, I know you can get for around your price range, the BC you can get for a good price lightly used.

Those two are my favorite that I know fit a wide horse nice enough.

I tried a billy cook today and it was super nice on him! He seemed a lot happier too so I think I will be getting one. I really need a training saddle because I ride hard and in the rain and on the trails (pretty much everywhere) I am hoping to keep him in this shape.
