    Every thing was done that could be and they still insisted that the stuffing was removed. Perhaps a very zealous custom officer.It was a pony saddle.

    What about Kentaur saddles?
    any opinions?

    Lots of showjumpers use kentaur saddles for their large w/bloods. they are European made and definitely accommodate for big warmbloods, am sure Lucy from kentaur could advise u on what would be best.

    Yep- Kentaurs are pretty good fit wise- I find them incredibly uncomfortable- but I know many others love them... And I'm not overly fond of the leather **)

    I've been trying some saddles and taking all of this advice on board.

    I tried the bates dressage, I can fit 4.5 fingers in the channel down the middle but most of the saddles I've looked at are slightly more narrow at the back?

    He seemed a lot more free through the shoulder with the dressage than the other saddles I have tried so far.

    I am going to get someone out so I can try the KN's and Kentaur's as well.
    I found a second hand Kentaur (basically new) that I can afford now though.

    I have to be realistic, I want a better saddle for my horse but I have to be able to pay it off as I can't afford the outlay all at once. So it puts a few of the great suggesions on the back burner.
