There are companies that let you try. Podium through Steve Elliott and Hal Hal send you a demo. My roommate had it for two weeks. It is a great saddle. Unfortunately it absolutely did not fit my horse, however, my roommate is getting one. There are other makers that let you try them. Also, buying a used saddle is a great idea. That is where I got my SR. Endurance.net has a lot of classified ads for saddles with pics and most of them would work something out for a tryout. I have more saddles than horses [barely]......mb
