I've heard that Tucker endurance saddles are nice.

Ebay, Craigslist, tacktrader.com (I think that's it) and Facebook tack groups are great resources for finding used saddles.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Remember saddle fit is the most important factor. It can be hard to buy saddles online without having tried one on your horse.

Perhaps try to borrow some to try on your horse so you can know what you're looking for. They can be found anywhere, online classifieds, Facebook, eBay etc.

There is a classified section on Endurance dot net.
Plenty of FB endurance tack pages as well. Those are the places to look for good used endurance saddles.

There are many types of endurance saddles, and I strongly suggest you go for one with a trial period to make sure you and your horse are both happy with it.
On the FB endurance pages, you'll also find many instructive conversations about saddles.

I'm riding one horse in an Arabian Saddle Company saddle (made in England). It's an English AP saddle, light, and close contact.
I ride the other horse in a Specialized Saddle Eurolight: deep safe seat, affordable, totally adjustable and light.

Hi Rider!

Absolutely best if you can try the saddle beforehand, as a poorly fitted saddle can cause all manner of problems.

That said, Georgie and I really like his Synergist endurance saddle, and he was tough to fit.

They're kinda pricey new, but for a modest fee, they will rework a used Synergist saddle to fit your horse (within reason). They use something called an Equifit (something like that), which is a sheet of special plastic that you heat and mold to your animals back. This is then used as a guide to shape the saddle. That is about as close as you're gonna get w/o being able to physically try the saddle on your horse. (Maybe even closer for many riders . . .)

If you contact Synergist, you will find them very helpful.
