I am not in the imediate market for a saddle, due to us needing a new AC, but we have been looking around. We are thinking of getting me one for Christmas!! So we went to the local tack shop a few days ago, to try some out and see what brand 'fit' me best. Cowboy is a medium tree, and can even go in a medium-wide or medium-narrow, but best in a reg. Medium. So I was looking at those trees, and the way of fit. We were stricly looking around at this tack shop, becuase it is known to be a little pricey.
So, after trying out Collegiate, Stubben, and HDR, we decided that Collegiate looked/fit/felt the best by far :) The way the saddle is made just suits me. And I'm thinking it will fit Cowboy well. I found a certain type I liked too. It's below -
COLLEGIATE Laureate Close Contact Saddle:...
I just loved the feel and position of the Laureate. Now, I obviously can't afford a brand new saddle, so I was looking at used. The saddle at the tack store was around $650. Is this a good deal? Can I find cheaper? Where, and how?
Thank You :) Obviously, any nay-sayers please speak up!!
