I’m about to embark on a saddle search (sigh). Before I start bringing in saddles and a fitter to see what suits Mr. Sensitive, I’d like to get some advice on what would work for me.
I’ve been riding dressage for many years, and hunt seat before that. I’ve aged into my 70s since the last time I saddle shopped, and I’ve now got a stiff right hip. This makes it harder for me to get my leg over the saddle when mounting.
I’d love some suggestions on brands/models that have a low cantle. Horse seems to prefer wool flocking and non-point billet. I normally ride in a 17.5 seat, normal to short flap.
Thanks in advance for suggestions. I’m open to both new and used.
