Re: Saddles

Hi!  I, for one, would appreciate answers to this question
on a public basis, so that the rest of us can benefit.  BTW,
the catalogue, National Bridle Shop, specializes in Gaited
Horses, and I'm considering one of their saddles--the
Granada Paragon.  It is inexpensive, which will allow me
to try  an English type trail saddle that supposedly fits the
gaited horse well, for a smaller investment.  It costs $335
and is  leather with lots of  solid brass rings and a deep
padded seat.  They have a line of Western style saddles
as well.  Their # is 1-800-251-3474--I don't think they
have a web-site.  Thanks, and keep the info. coming.
