Question Dressage saddle?

I was looking for a used (but very good quality) dressage saddle. I saw this one. Is it a good brand?? It's new and cheap... But looks really nice, and it's leather...

What about this one? It's used. I haven't heard of the brand before?

The first one is a cheapie. I have not heard of the second one, but the third is a good brand. Not sure how much you're looking to spend, but I have a very nice Courbette Luxor for sale. It's a 17", retails for $1750 and I'm asking $850.

Depending on where in Canada you're located, shipping might be pretty expensive, though.

County and KN are the only 2 brands out of those I have heard of. I own a KN and love it, but it depends on what is going to fit you and your horse. Other brands to try are stubben, passier and courbette.

I just purchased the KN Symphonie and absolutely LOVE it. So comfortable, and puts my legs in perfect position. Fits my horse very well (16.2 h TB)

I have the cheapie Ascot, it's ok, I really don't use it much but fits my horse very well. If I had to use it for everyday work, I believe it would hold up fine.

County is very nice. I tried one, but unfortunately was too small for my legs. KN is nice too, but feels little too hard to my taste. I've never heard about Ascot.

That is a nice saddle equinephile! I have a 17.5" saddle but it is way to big for me. I am looking for a 16-16.5.

I love the KN, it looks soo nice!

The Ascot looks nice too, but I was worried that it might not hold up.
