I am in the market for a new A/P English Saddle and while I have done a lot of research on my own I am in the need of some advice. I am 5’0" (so pretty short) and last year went through a spinal fusion. I got the OK to ride from my physician, so all is well there. My horse, or rather pony, is a Welsh/Morgan cross mare standing 14 hands and requires a medium tree. She has a nice topline to her and is very athletic. I do some jumping, but not like I use to in my 20’s. Mostly now I just hack around and do trail rides. I have an old Stubben that I love, but it is a wide tree and therefore does not fit my mare.
I am in the market for a used saddle. I would like one that is good for shorter riders, has a deep seat, and provides a comfortable seat. Obviously I would like it to also be comfortable for my girl as well.
Any suggestions are appreicated. Thank you in advance!
