I'm sure in time you will come to find there are a lot of "unfairness" in the world specially when it comes to issues such as that! I'm sorry to hear that it seems as though you are the only one that can not use your "tack", I believe that if you do it in a respectful way then you should be allowed to voice your opinion without anyone getting mad. Unfortantly I'm sure that many will since they "may" loose their privlages due to your complaints. (Which, as you stated, is only fair then.)
If in the end you still can't use the saddle my biggest suggestion would be "keep the saddle". I kept my "youth" saddle for many many years with couple years inbetween of not using it at all or very little. Point being, you already spend the money ~ said goodbye to the money ~ and now you have a saddle w/ no horse to put it on. HOWEVER ~ someday you may have that horse & NO SADDLE then. At least if you get a horse someday you have a saddle to "start" off with until you can get a "more" appropriate saddle to use on the "new" horse.
Best of luck in your conquest!!
