I'm looking for some larger horses more in line with Raven Banner's.The problem is I need them without saddles as the figures I have have the saddle cast with them.Any ideas?

Pretty sure Front Rank makes horses without "furniture".

Old Glory horses work for me.

OG are the ones that I want to exchange.

I was looking at the Front Rank ones and it says 17th/18th cen. horses which I don't know if that makes a difference or not and I don't know if they are bigger than Old Glory's.If they were in the US I might try a couple but I'm not sending to the UK for a couple of horses and I'm not going to buy a whole bunch and then not be happy with them.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

FR are bigger than OG. I'm not sure whether OG riders would fit on FR horses, though.

Front Rank figures are available through Triangle Miniatures: link I have purchased horses from them to replace others that I didn't want to use. They are great to deal with.

Thanks Skeets.

As dbf1676 said, FR figs are typically bigger than OG. If you're going to try to put an OG figure that includes the saddle on a bareback FR horse, I would get FR "light" horses.

WRT Skeets mentioning Triangle, I thought I remembered that guy getting away from FR, but I might be confusing that with GMB flags. Definitely communicate with him first.

I have used Perry ACW plastic horses with my Foundry SYW figs by carving off the saddles.
