I am saddle hunting (again) because the used (but very high quality) foam paneled saddle I bought last summer turned out to not fit my horse after all. I event, so am looking for a good jump saddle. I prefer monoflap, but am open to traditional too.
My main question is…Do foam paneled saddles change over time? I thought that what you bought is what you got, and you couldn’t change them, so you had to make sure they fit. Whereas with a wool flocked panel, some adjustments can be made.
The salesperson who represents a wool-flocked saddle is telling me that foam is no good, and she’s implying that foam will change over time - yet lots of people ride in foam paneled saddles. Help!
