TN Saddlery??
I found this on eBay (yes I know don't buy a saddle on eBay it's probably junk... make sure it fits... etc.) I got the measurements and it seems like it would be a perfect fit for my paint. Any experience with this brand? It is such a pretty saddle and made in the US. Plus since I'm suspecting my paint may be gaited as she goes into a jog between trot and canter. Either way here's the link:

A gaited Paint?
Our two Paints need a wide tree.Just make sure you can resell it or return it if it doesn't fit. Buying online is a gamble unless you know exactly what you are getting. So many choices...and so little chance to actually see the saddle at a local tack shop. It can drive ya nuts!
Sorry. I'm no help but I wish you good luck!

Thanks :-) she's an Appendix paint... double registered with APHA and AQHA. And I guess since thoroughbreds CAN be gaited she got a gaited gene in there somewhere... it's kinda cool but weird. She and I make quite a pair :-)

I highly doubt that Saddle is made in the USA, it says designed in TN.

The Saddle strings and shape of the Pommel give it away, I bet it is made in Kanpur India :wink:

Well that is very unfortunate :-(

Maybe I'm too picky... I want a round skirt natural saddle with a black seat. And I don't want to pay a fortune. Is that too much to ask? Not to mention my horse is hard to fit... I think I am doomed to ride in ill fitting saddles :-(. The one I'm using now is pinching her withers...

Try Dakota Saddles, they are American Made and reasonably priced


PaintMommy87 05-08-2013 03:33 PM

That's what I'm riding in now. It pinches her withers :-(.

Dakota has 7 different Trees they can put in a Saddle, they make them to order also :wink:

Oh how fun! I'll look into them. Have you heard anything about Rider's Choice saddles? My friend has one and keeps raving about it, but I can't find enough about them online...
