Saddle for Haflinger?
 
I was leasing a 13.3 Haflinger mare and I rode in a synthetic EquiRoyal 17.5W all purpose saddle that fit her quite well. Owners sold her and I'm looking at possibly purchasing a Haffy for myself down the rode (love love love the breed!). I want to invest in a nice quality, mid-range saddle that will last me for several years. Just curious what other owners, specifically of draft, draft cross breeds ride in? Is there a specific saddle maker that really excels with wide, all purpose saddles for drafts? Advice advice is appreciated.

If you're looking for an English saddle, check out Duett: Duett Saddles

Their saddles are designed specifically for Haffies and other draft horses. I got the Encore dressage saddle for my wide-backed Paint pony and I just love it. The saddles are well made and have features to make them very comfortable for the horse. They've got a generous trial policy, too.

Fantastic, thanks! I'll look into that brand.
