Ok, so, a couple of weeks ago, a saddle fitter came out to our barn. He was a Black Country rep, and we decided to have him look at the saddle that I was planning on getting(test riding from Dover[It was a Stubben Roxanne S]) and he said it was going to work for us. I was extatic! He then let me try one of his dressage saddles just for kicks, and I fell in LOVE. Like. I mounted and imediatly went "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!" Then I rode in it, and it was HEAVEN! Then he let my try one of his (acctually, his personal) jumping saddle, and I fell in love with it too! So bye bye Stubben, hello semi-custom Black Country! My mom took my Christmas money, and some of the money from the other saddle (we're sending it back to Dover) and I now have two new Black Country Saddles on their way from England! Here are Pics! Oh, and I would HIGHLY recomend them if you can get a fitter out!

I am so jealous!! I LOVE BC saddles. I would love to have one, or three, one day. However, they cost more than I have paid for any horse that I have bought for myself, and even more than what I paid for my truck, lol. My husband would have a heart attack... ;-)

GRRRRR! Iceland needs to go die.... I just found out that because of the closed airports, my saddles didn't ship from England until late today. That means I won't get them until NEXT tuesday.... I'm quite an angry person....

There is a tack shop in the US that sells black country saddles, and they let you have a week trail as well to make sure it fits you and your horse(they have new and used) I really wanted a BC saddle but I have a hard to fit horse and didnt want to order one from the UK pay a lot and have it not fit, so now my saddle is on its way here and I'm so excited! sooo happy I finaly found a good qualty saddle with a 40cm tree XD

Yeah I've ordered a BC I'm sooooo excited!! I hope it fits, If not I can send it back and only pay shipping which is $65 for Canada, but considering how much I pay for gas driving to every tack shop in a 100km radius almost every week trying to find a saddle I consider that cheap :p

Yes I sent in pictures and 3 different tracings, I'm just worried because I've never found a brand that makes the tree wide enough. I actually got one that the tack shop called trumbull mountain got BC to custom make this kind of saddle for them, its an endurance saddle but it still meets the standard to show dressage in.

This is it! It's got surge for the panels which is supposed to be more breathable and conforms to your horses back so you get a really good fit, Australian stock saddles use it as well.
