Saddle wanted!

Trying to get ready for the up coming show season. . .
-- I'm looking for an 18" Close Contact or 17.5"-18" All Purpose to fit my HIGH withered Thoroughbred. Light leather color if possible (oakbark, caramel, etc.)

I'm currently riding in a Courbette Alpina All Purpose and that seems to be doing the trick, but its older and i need one with big knee rolls and a forward flap. Close contacts better for me, but AP fits him better.

I need about a 30" gullet and a medium tree.
Also, if avalible, I'd like to have the saddle for a five day trial to see if it fits.

I know you'd like to have a trial period, but definitely check out ebay! There are some AWESOME saddles for sale right now, and the prices are awesome too! I just got a Pessoa jumping saddle with all the fittings, girth, and show pad for $250, and a Kincade AP with fittings for $170. Definitely worth a look! Good luck

Yeah i'm actually looking now, I had a pessoa on my TB a few months ago, before the winter hit and it fit him really well. But the prices are kind of out of my price range. Hopefully i can find a cheap Pessoa out there.

Its so hard to fit my horse. . .
