    Default Jumping/GP saddle for Connemara

    Hi All

    I'm sure this question has been asked many a time but here goes...

    I have a 14.1 and growing (bum high) 5 year old Connemara. He is fairly short in the back but comfortably takes a 16.5 to 17in saddle. I currently have a Kent and Master GP that I just can't get used to with its fairly high cantle. We are in the main show jumping/hunting so a saddle that caters more towards the jumping would be great. Ideally close contact with a square cantle.

    It must of course cater for his breed type and his potential growth (outwards). I don't think a forward cut saddle would suit due to shoulder. I have a flexible budget and will buy new if required. We are off to the saddlers in a few weeks for templates and potentially fitting any saddle I find second hand!

    All suggestions welcome!!

    Thanks!

    Now that's interesting, I have a four year old connie x who is short backed and croup high, was planning on getting a Kent and masters s series compact GP.

    Mine is the original - so may be better with the compact

    My new boy arrived last week, 8yo Connie. Have been using my mares Albion k2 on him and it fits him really nicely.

    A connie on the yard has an Albion and is very pleased with it

    Ideals are nice on native types, but not terribly forward cut I've found.

    Ideal or comfort saddle, they do a jumping saddle ( they used to be with native pony but split but still do saddles for natives! )
