I am not 100% familiar with this range. So I welcome any input readers may have to the following query.
My changeable pommel is D3 –
I have completely no idea what width it is (in cm) – could you please
explain it to me please? Gullets for this saddle are defined as
Gullet: K1, K2, K3, K4, K5. There is no “D” as in my saddle… I’ve
got problems also with ascertainment, if this one (D3) is suitable for
my horse. I don’t want it to be too wide or too narrow.
My last question is about the small plastic elements hidden between panels
and seat. I’ve never seen anything like this in regular saddles. Could
you please tell me how to properly use them? Can I remove them and if so
– what then will happened?

It’s not often that I feel compelled to warn readers of the volume of cheap saddles on the market currently.
EBay appears to be attracting numerous sellers from India selling saddles that are better suited to a rocking horse.
They are often poorly made, glued in places or with poor stitching. The stirrup bars might not be symmetrical. The leather is slippery and sometimes hard. The saddle may even collapse in the centre if you use it. The complete package can include buckles that do not fit and render the leathers and girth useless. People usually sell on as used once, tried on doesn’t fit.
The only budget range treeless that I recommend is the Libra saddle range from Libra Equestrian. I have reason to believe this brand has no current stockist for the saddle. They will pop up second hand though.
