Familiar w/ Ainsley saddles??
I've been on a bit of a saddle search lately and my instructor has been helping out by asking other students/people she knows about saddles they have for sale. She found three (all sitting pretty on the back of my couch at the moment... much to my dad's dismay :wink:). Out of the three, one is perhaps the comfiest I've been in... a dressage saddle by Ainsley. The name sounds vaguely familiar, but I haven't been able to find out much about it. I think it's a saddle brand in the UK?

If anyone knows a few things about these saddles or can find a website with info about them, it would be much appreciated! For one thing, I'd like to know a bit more about what its tree is made of and what type of flocking it has.

I've also got a bit of a side question that doesn't have to do with the brand. I've kind of fallen in love with this saddle, but being 5'3" I fear that the flaps may be a bit long for me. Is there any guideline for where the flaps should end on a rider's leg with a dressage saddle? Is it at all possible to have them modified?
