I bet so. I remember checking their site several years back, and don't recall seeing any. Although may be I just missed it. :)

I would if my bum was a bit smaller. Thanks, though.

If you're looking for something cheap & functional, I'd go with a Wintec 500 Dressage saddle. They fit a lot of horses (unlike most cheap brands), they're pretty nice to ride in, and they're very hard wearing.

You can sometimes find nice used saddles for cheap, although it's very rare to find one of the really good brands in acceptable condition in the lower price range. Good brands to look for are County, Passier, and some of the older Collegiates. Steer away from Collegiates made in the last 5 years (they're made by a different company now), Crosbys, and Courbettes- they're all made with ridiculously narrow gullets (regardless of tree size) that just never works right on any horse.

Good luck in your search, saddle shopping is hell.

Of course, if you up your price range, you can always check out mine! LOL Balance International Matrix GP/Dressage Saddle - XX-Wide - C Seat - Havanna | eBay

I have a roosli pilatus for sale on ebay. It's a great saddle. This one was custom made for my high-withered thoroughbred. Doesn't fit my new guy, so I regretfully have to sell. Lovely saddle. Excellent condition. It has a 17.5 seat, narrow tree, narrow twist, and was produced in 2007.

Get a fitting done first

Before you buy any saddle, hire a fitter to find out what you need. Most have quite a few saddles to try and many have adjustable saddles, which they can adjust until it feels just right. Then when you are looking you will know seat size, flap length and position, gullet width, all very important if you are going to expect your horse to move comfortably. Do not buy a saddle that doesn't fit, no matter how cheap it is. You may not be able to afford the saddles they sell, but it will give you something to shoot for. I met the County fitter at a barn and paid the $125.00. it was the best money I ever spent. Also I know someday I am going to own a "Perfection" saddle, I never felt anything like that before.
