Labelle dressage saddles?

This should possibly go in the tack section, I apologise in advance! But I am probably more likely to get a response on here.
Duffy (Argh!) is changing shape so fast (more argh!) and we've been through three saddles already. Wintec, Stubben, Kieffer. Bonus she's putting muscle on, bad side.. I don't have a saddle!! She is fairly high withered, but it looks like a camel hump at the moment because she needs to put more back muscle on.

Now, has anyone heard of these saddles? You can change them with a saddler, sits off the wither, super duper comfortable, AND it has like..pouches I would say, so its not on the shoulder so much! Weird, but genius! I rode her in somoene elses yesterday and my lord... it was pure BLISS. I loved it! Any reviews, or any other saddle makes, throw my way!

Duffy, I've never heard of the brand unfortunately (but you are in Europe). If you have some money to spend I'd suggest also to consider Black Country. I tried Eloquence and it was a nice saddle of great quality (and all reviews I read are very positive). They also customize them (and while they are pricey I think it's quite a fair price for the customized saddle). I believe they are in UK.

P.S. It's OK section for "dressage saddle" question.

Thanks Val :)
Will have a look.. my christmas bonus is around €1000, 200 of that needs to be put aside for Rufus' vets bill and then the rest is saddle money!! Which is a fair amount, I'm looking more second hand that anything else, and go from there!

I wish I could try Berney Brothers dressage one (Berney Kildare Dressage Saddle or Berney Show Saddle). Because that would be my range of price. I tried their jumping saddles couple times and they felt amazingly under by butt (unfortunately one didn't fit my horse, and other was in too bad of shape).

I know this is a super old thread but I thought i'd revive it as I went to a clinic over the weekend with Maggie Broekman and she rode in a labelle as did all of the riders that I was there to see (so four + people). And the one rider that I had an opportunity to sit and talk to for a bit said most people at that barn have been converted to labelle saddles. I can't seem to find out much about them but they're clearly here in the states as well. Maybe someone has heard more about them since this original post?
