    I don't know if you would want to ship, but I might have a brand new Elan for sale, it is only a 20 inch seat, so smaller. It is hunt style. Only sat on a horse once, and it kills me to say it but my horse's health isn't improving so it may never be used. The only thing is, it is only a medium, so rather narrow through the points.

    But this may not be what you want, but if you want a new saddle I highly recommend Marti at Hundred Oaks, she put up with all my questions, and was really help fully. They also sell a good book on riding.

    I'll second the recommendation of an Elan--it's considered a "start-up" saddle, but they are well-made, well-designed, and often end up being a long-term saddle for those who have them. Ditto- for Marti and Hundred Oaks. I'm guessing the book you refer to is Sidesaddle Legacy--co-authored by Marti Friddle and Linda Bowlby. Good choice for getting anyone started in ss.

    I second the motion: Yes, Elan should be a good, functional starter saddle.

    I got lucky on my first sidesaddle. Now I know that the likelihood of getting the right sidesaddle when you are inexperienced is about as likely as finding the right horse when you are inexperienced. You really need someone who knows their stuff to give you a hand.

    Riding sidesaddle is a blast. Remember that BALANCE is essential. The saddle isn't supposed to keep you on the horse.

    If you have horses with prominent withers, you are already off to a good start. Make sure the saddle fits properly.
