I'm going to try to make this as short as possible! I am looking for a new saddle that will fit a wide variety of horses. I want it to last me at least 6 years, if not more. I don't have a horse and probably won't have a horse for another 6+ years. I will be riding a handful of school horses for the next two years and then will be going to college and riding a handful of warmbloods/thoroughbreds. I am looking to buy used. I am not looking at ebay because you can't try the saddle before you buy it. I have been looking at online consignment shops. I have a $1000 budget.
Here are some saddles I have found:
Beval Natural, reg. tree, 17", $695
Collegiate Finalist, reg. tree, 17", $595
Courbette Alpina, reg. tree, 17", $595
Circuit Close Contact, reg. tree, 16.5", $550
Pessoa (not sure of model), reg. tree, 17", $650
Dominus, reg. tree, 17", $895
Dover International, reg. tree, 17", $595
Thornhill Pro-Trainer, reg. tree, 17", $650
Tell me what you think!
