I forgot I also have to think about colour! I think I will go dark brown - the dressage saddle is my mare’s saddle; somehow my 15.2 hand mare fits the same girth and bridle as my 16.3 hand gelding.
I am thinking brown is the better colour on a palomino?
Given his odd shape, I do wonder if a lower girth placement would be better, so the buckles aren’t sitting right at the wide part of his body? I assume they will sell girths that match?
I am not a calfskin saddle person: I like the thicker leather.
@Bluey given how utterly odd this horse is built, I am hoping this saddle can be adjusted to fit him near indefinitely, so not really thinking resale, but that is interesting to note. I don’t really see monoflaps here, other than the odd eventer.
