Thanks for all the advise. I e-mailed my ex about fitment of her old saddle but I'm not expecting anything in reply. I'm going to ride to the saddle shop today to look around and talk to someone up there. I ride western BTW. I'm thinking I might go to a few tack auctions and find something used, that way if it doesn't fit right I should be able to get my money back out of it. The closest tack shop is about an hour or so away, I don't really want to haul her that far if I can help it. My truck gets about 5 MPG with the trailer and doesn't have much life left to be honest. I was going to look at the abetta synthetic tack while I'm up there, it seems like it requires less care, is cheaper, and should last just as long if not longer. My neighbor has a pile of headstalls he said I could dig through and find something already set up with hackamores on them. I might try a bit while I'm there to see how she takes to it. I don't know her history before the last few years, she might do well with one.
