The thing that I find most amazing with their saddle is that it is NOT a custom saddle. you have 2 (yes 2) tree sizes. (Parelli standard and Super wide)
This is from their site about the standard
"Standard: This saddle will suit the majority of riders and horses. While we call this Parelli STANDARD, remember it is approx. a 7X, or seven times wider than most English saddle gullets described as "wide". It is already constructed in a way to improve your horse's ability to use his back. "
I measured my fiance's english saddle. The gullet width (in the back of the saddle) is 2 inches. If the standard is 7 times that, then it would be 14 inches which would be LARGER than his saddle!
Now, if they're talking about the front part of the gullet to have a wide, it wouldn't fit ANY of my horses. Why do you ask? Because Montana is most likely a narrow or medium narrow, and Gem and Vega are narrows. Any wider on any of them and the saddle will be SITTING on their withers, not that cannot be good for any horse.
Don't forget that when you do shell out the over 4k for the saddle (which takes anywhere from 45-90 days.. 1 1/2 -3 months for you saddle) the BEST way to really ride with this saddle is to use THEIR saddle pads. And they're being sold for the low price of $440! ($330 if you're a savvy member...)
I wanted to get a feel for how much it would be to have a CUSTOM saddle done, price wise.
I stumbled across this site. (Custom-Fitted English Saddles by Master Saddler, Michael Stokes of Centaur Saddlery
All their english saddles (Dressage, AP, Close contact and cross country saddles) all start at $2,800
I personally, wouldn't spend over $4,000 for some non brand (But I would pay over 4k for a well known brand/maker like Stubben, Butet, Pessoa, etc) While Parelli is a big name, it says nothing to me about quality
of the saddle.
