With my horse recovering from kissing spine surgery it’s back to shopping for a new saddle while I list my foam-flocked one (RIP wallet). While I’m planning on having an independent fitter out closer to my OTTB being started back under saddle, I figured now’s as good a time as any to start learning more about saddles that could be a good fit to keep an eye out for and to discuss with my fitter.
I’m specifically looking for a forward-flapped, hunter and fox-hunter and shark-fin friendly, wool-flocked saddle. Bonus points if there’s a trustworthy rep that gets out to Texas.
Just really looking to hear all your favorite saddles that may be worth learning more about!
I’m personally feeling most partial to a Black Country but would love to hear other opinions!
