    At some point when I break the big thug in, I wouldn't mind getting a slightly more secure saddle than my old AP. Recommendations for affordable stock or half-breeds, to fit a TB? Happy with synthetic.

    An Ammo (new around $600 mark, synthetic.)

    Horse Lines (leather, new, around $1000-$1500)

    There are plenty of second hand saddles around, most of them are only cheapies to start with so they are even cheaper second hand. You could pick one up for a couple of hundred easy.

    I have a syd hill synthetic half breed, but to me I don't feel that secure in it, when I feel I need my 'safe' saddle out come my trusty old RM stock saddle. It was the best $500 I ever spent. If your wanting a cheaper saddle that makes you feel safe personally I would go stock over halfbreed. Having said that I have got a good halfbreed that I love but that was over $2000 **)

    I haven't come out of my Northern River Drafter yet but can't say it puts me in the best position. I do use it on my TB mare but cannot use it on my husbands, high withered TB mare.
    The other saddle I like for stickability is the Wintec Stock. My SIL has the swinging fender in leather & it's a snug fit.
    I did have the Syd Hill but TBH didn't like it all that much.

    Can not recommend the Eqwest Half Breed enough! Loved it, miss it.

    Wintec Stock saddles are super comfy as well and have great stickability.
