    I stopped by the local tack shop today and checked out three saddles to try out on him -- none of which worked out quite right. One of our issues is that he has such a short back that we have to be really careful that the saddle isn't too long. Does anyone have suggestions in terms of dressage saddle brands that might work well for a short-backed low-withered youngster? Here is a recent photo of the stinker:

    I'm sort of keeping an eye out for a reasonably priced Hermes, since he seems to do so well in our trainer's Hermes... but there aren't a whole ton of Hermes saddles out there. I'm somewhat intrigued by the M. Toulouse saddles -- especially the ones with adjustable trees. Does anyone know about those saddles?
    He's beautiful! Would a saddle marketed towards Arabian maybe work better for him with the short back?
