    Jump saddle suggestions please

    So I have a little (16h) ISH, big shoulders and quite short backed. I like a nice forward cut saddle with plenty of knee for support, however horse's shoulder doesn't allow. I'm reasonably tall (5'8) so ideally need a 17.5" saddle but can get away with 17. So, for example, I tried him...

    Horse swapping - is this possible? If so where??

    So, one of my liveries has just bought herself a new horse, unseen. Lovely little TB mare but sadly she can't ride it. Shame really, as it is a lovely mare, with a great attitude and good ability but just not suitable for an unbalanced novice! Does anyone know any sites where you can...
