[RC] [Guest] saddles - Ridecamp Guest

Help!  I too am in the mist of the great saddle search.  I have a 14 hand
Arab mare w/ no withers.  She is 5 years old and is a rosy grey.  She is
petite and short backed.  She is from Bask/Profire lines.  I live in
southern California with lots of rocky hills.  I have a breast collar and
will add a crupper necessary.  I prefer a western type of saddle.  However I
know I'm headed toward the English style.

My 1950's Simco is to narrow in the front and rubs her shoulders.  I ordered
a Sports Saddle and it is just too big.  The SS rubs on her loins. It
created 2 white spots were the longer dark hair has been rubbed off, leaving
the shorter lighter hairs.  The SS was too big around the girth too.  I
was/am so disappointed it did not fit.

I'm looking at a Mackinder Flex Ride endurance saddle, a Marciante and an
Albetta endurance (cordura).  What have you Ride Campers found works for
you?  I really need some help. Thank you in advance for your time,
