My new mare and I are starting some basic dressage schooling together and, while I am using my trainer's saddle for now, I would like to find my own saddle. I've found a tack shop that has a pretty large selection of used dressage saddles, but I am looking for opinions on favorite/least favorite brands, etc., as I am much more familiar with the Western world! I know the most important factor is whether or not it fits Zetha well, and the shop owner has already agreed to let me take a saddle on trial basis, so that's good.
One interesting prospect was a used County dressage saddle, though I will have to go back in and have another look to know which model. It is only medium width, but my mare is not a particularly wide Friesian, and my trainer's standard saddle fits her perfectly, so I'm not overly concerned about it not having a wide tree. The saddle does show some wear, but the leather still seems to be in decent condition. I'm wondering what you, oh wise horseforum users!, would consider a fair price for a moderately used County dressage saddle? Some of this shops items seem right on and some seem over-priced, so I'm just trying to get a good feel for what's fair.
Thanks so much for your help!
