    Yeah, I know it's hard to find a good (and reasonable) fitter, so just do you best with pics!

    P.S. I know what you are talking about. One of the reasons I went with my lady fitter is that she's not a dealer for any saddle brand and don't have saddles for sale besides some re-sells for customers here and there. I contacted couple others and they were VERY pushy about the brands they are selling.

    You could try something like the Tekna saddle. The AP version has quite a curved tree which could possibly sit nicely on your horse's back. I'm not sure about the Jumping version though, since that tree's a little straighter.

    QH - not all Collegiate's have strait tree's. There is a lady at the barn I am at who has a Collegiate Convertible Diploma, and the tree is quite nice to accomodate horses backs like Nelson's and Blue's.

    Please don't go by pictures for a saddle fit - I don't agree with it and I don't always think they are thorough - not as thorough as having someone there in person.

    I have a saddle fitter that I just had out to assess Nelson, his back, me, and my saddle and it was an amazing, educational, thorough session. I highly recommend her - and the saddle fitter you are talking about isn't the only one in the area.

    There are a handful of Saddle Fitters in the area who will work with you, aside form the 1 that you've mentioned. And I understand your feelings, cause I agree.

    Anyways, her name is Dawn, and I give her 5 thumbs up. She charges $75.00 but she is VERY, VERY, VERY thorough. She will start with you, making you stand on 2 scales *one on each foot* and she measures your body balance, and she measures your hips and your angles and she takes a thorough look at you. Then she moves to the horse, and she does a very thorough examination on the horse, telling you where the issues are, the areas needing work and what caused the issues and how to correct them and etc, etc - then she examins your saddle. And then she moves to examining the saddle on the horses back, and assess the fit, being very thorough with this process.

    Once she is done that, she moves onto the process of watching you ride, watching your body, your balance, and she watches the horse move and how the horse moves and etc, etc.

    I highly recomend her, I love her and it was an amazing experience. I am very thankful for my session.

    She will tell you if your saddle fits, and what saddles to look for, and she will come back out to help you assess a chosen saddle, or she will even meet you at tack stores to help you choose a saddle.

    She is very knowledgeable as well, she'll tell you alot about the tack you are using with the saddle, if it is good or not - for example, I discovered the girth I have is causing more of the girthyness issues that anything and directed me to what girths to look for to accomodate Nelson.

    I can shoot you her phone number if you want to give her a try - I highly recommend her or a saddler like her in the area. I know how frustrating saddle shopping is!

    Hmm okay, I love collegiates so I wouldn't mind getting another. There is one here on the forums that I wouldn't mind trying, and I have wanted a senior event since I sold the first one I ever had, but I am not sure if it would appropriate for my future needs.

    I ended up contacting the fitters at thumbull mountain tack, they did wonders with fitting Rocket. So I will be sending them wither tracings.

    Well I double checked the kieffer and it is not bridging on him.





    I think maybe it was just the other picture or the pad or something.

    Glad it isn't bridging - it could of been that picture...but that goes to show, that's why I don't like going by pictures.

    I would stay away from the Collegiate Event - that definitely has a strait tree. If you want a tree that has an arch - look at the Diploma and the other CC..cannot remember the name of it...Annice? No.....what is it....poop....

    The annice is a toulouse model, I remember that from Classic. :)

    Speaking of classic, I think I have narrowed it down to either the courbette classic or the courbette futura.
