Yeah, true. Also, buying used saddles can be better also because you get the chance to afford good quality saddles that would be too expensive for your budget, if a new one had to be bought.
I'm currently looking on a Kieffer all purpose model, but I have to wait for the owner to return from a foreign trip. My boy has a wide back and medium/low whithers, and it seems that his size is not too popular around here - everything is for horses with more narrow backs... I've already tried many saddles and all of them didn't fit him at all. What also makes me mad - in the place where he used to be a lesson horse (a greenbroke lessonhorse? seriously, people?! ), an ill-fitting saddle was put on him all the time so he still has to build up back muscles in order to deal with the problems they caused. Ugh...
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
