What do you think of Coventry saddles?

Here is a link to a saddle I am looking at. What do you guys think? I need a jumping saddle for my very very wide backed High High withered TB I need it to be wool flocked because he has a really high backend and is very down hill. He looks like an old sway back mare. Lol His conformation is awful he has a very long back also. I have a saddle fitter (County) who has helped me very much with the saddle I have but it is a narrow and I obviously atleast need a wide so she will come and reflock to his back as soon as I get a saddle but I just wanted to know if anyboby has any feedback on these saddles?
Thanks so much!!

Oh I forgot to mention it is being sold for $595. Is that a good price? It is a 17.5 wide and it is wool flocked.

It looks nice. I haven't heard of coventry saddles, but I will do some research on them.
The saddle looks nice and broken in and should probably be very comfy too.

Have you tried a medium gullet on your horse? (I'm asking because you say you have a narrow.. unless I misread it and the current tree is narrow)

The only concern I have is that the pommel may not be cut back enough for his withers, though that can only be told when you have the saddle on your horse.
Is there any chance you could to a trial with it just to see how both you and your horse like the saddle?

Yes, I had tried a Thornhill med on him and that was still to tight. I have had 2 different saddle fitters look at him and say wide. Lol If you saw him you would understand. Lol My trainer says he is like riding a huge WB only your not far from the ground. (He is 15.1)
Thanks I think it looks rather nice also and being that it is wool flocked I would think it is somewhat of a nice saddle.
It is a thru a tack shop in NC so I can do a trial!! Thanks god I would never beable to just look and see if it fit.
Thanks for the feed back and post anything you find good or bad.

This was the only information I could find on it (besides adds for them for sale)

I say, if it fits you and your horse, get it!
