I dont ride in a saddle. I dont have one and the one I use to use was a dressage colligate saddle that no longer works. I would just want anything that fits my horse.

Wintec Isabell. I like the stickiness, deep seat and narrow twist (compared to the 09 Wintec Pro which I own but ended up not liking).

I ride western and trail ride mostly. I have a Circle Y park and trail saddle and I love it. It is so comfy and it fits both my horses well.
I also own a thorowgood Griffin and it is also very comfy and fits my Mustang very well, it is a little narrow for my Paint so I ride him in a Cambridge although it wouldnt be my first choice but it fits him well.
My daughter also has a youth Circle Y and she loves it , we are looking into getting her an English saddle though, I thought I would check out either Crosby or Collegiate...

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Right now my dream saddle is a county....I think one would fit my horse really well, but sadly I can't find one in my price range!

County's are lovely to ride in, but I don't really liek the new ones. The old styles are very nice though, prior to '94 are my favourite.

I have ridden in dressage saddles KenTaur Penelopa and KenTaur Eletra. Penelopa was more comfortable for me, but no of these was bad to sit in.

I ride in a Verhan but if I could have any saddle it would be a Henning.

Since this is in the dressage section I assume that it's about dressage saddles only, because I also have a jumping saddle. Anyways the dressage saddle I own and love is the Frank Baines Omni. It fits me like a glove, especially since it is designed for people with longer legs (most of the few complaints about this saddle are that the rider is too short to fit it properly). The seat is wonderfully sculpted and the leather (calf skin) is superb-I didn't need to 'break it in' at all. The overall design of the saddle is extremely elegant. I bought it in the summer of 09 and it seems like it will last at least 20 years, purchased for around $3,150 if I recall correctly.
