Does anybody out there ride their Arabian horse in this dressage saddle? Just wondering which tree size fit your Arab the best in this model saddle…a Med/Wide (30 cm) or a Wide (32 cm)???
Hi! Thanks for your reply. The 30 cm seemed to narrow for my mare… I think I may have to get the 32cm, which is called a Wide in the Stubben saddles. In some other saddles, like Prestige, I think a 32 cm is considered more of a medium tree… maybe the Stubbens run on the narrow side? Do you like the saddle overall for your Arabian? They can be a hard breed to fit.
Why this particular model for the horse? Do you have a fitter involved?
Stubbens are “fit” more on the narrow side, with most reps suggesting a thinner tree than the horse traditionally goes in.
I would trust your gut, if you think it is too narrow it likely is.
