After I got May, I knew I would have to find something that would be able to be fitted to May. I couldn’t afford a new, custom saddle (and still can’t), but I could afford something that might be close and have it adjusted to fit.
I got an Albion with a hoop tree at a good price. I got recommendations for a saddle fitter from a number of sources and paid a good deal of money to get the Albion adjusted and reflocked. I even got a recommendation for a Dressage saddle.
After I got the Albion back… I wasn’t thrilled. A good amount of time passed and I was finally able to have a saddle fitter out in KY.
