WANTED: Dressage Saddle

Hey guys! I am really looking into getting into dressage and am on the lookout for a saddle! I don't care if its been used or brand new. Can't really spend more than $200 so I probably won't be seeing any new saddles. I'm not sure what size I need in a dressage saddle but I'm 5'4" and about 130 lbs.

Possibly willing to trade my close contact saddle.

Thank you so much to anyone who replies! I'll be watching! :)

PM Nittanyequestrian, they just posted one for sale.

Thanks Flying! I have one for sale that would probably work seat wise for you. It's a wide tree though. What kind of horse do you have?

I don't have a horse of my own right now. I am riding quite a few horses though right now which is part of the reason I want this saddle. Most of her horses are normal backed to slightly narrow. Would a half pad designed to take weight off the withers help a wide tree? I'd rather have a wide tree than a narrow because it will work on more types of horses.

I'm interested if you have pictures and a reasonable price!

Pictures are on here. https://sites.google.com/site/nittan...ack-for-sale-1

I have put it on my TB mare that wears a medium tree and padded it up and it didn't hurt her. I wouldn't suggest it for every day though if you plan on getting a broader horse. QH, warmblood, etc then it wouldn't be a bad investment. I'm negotiable on the price. I haven't used it in a while and it's collecting dust. I'd prefer it get used instead of sitting around. Let me know if you want it and I can find out how much shipping will be. It's not that heavy just big.

Thank you for the photos! After looking at it and seeing how wide the tree really is, I think I'm going to pass. I think I would be better off with a medium or normal tree. It looks quite wide. :) Thank you though for all your help!

No problem. When my gelding was younger he was very wide and low withered but not that he's in his teens his back has dropped some and it no longer fits him right as it is rather wide and low withered. Someone at some point will be able to use it sorry I couldn't help you out.

No problem! Sometimes I can get a bit excited tack shopping but you helped me realize that in the long run, I should probably get something that would fit the majority of horses since I don't have one of my own and right now, I ride a lot of different horses. :)

I would strongly consider a collegiate or bates. They have changeable gullets and you can make them fit just about any horse adequately with a screwdriver and 5 minutes of your time. They are mid-grade saddles and I think very comfy and the whole kit of gullets is like 80 dollars or something around there.

About how much are those types of saddles?

I'm just a 20 year old girl doing my internship so money is limited. ;) I really want to get into dressage and I'm riding a variety of horses almost every day so everything I own for horses isn't perfect but its what gets you going so you can eventually get the good stuff! :)
