I'm currently using a stubben scandica vsd. Its not very comfortable for jumping though as its geared for flatwork. It does fine with the smaller fences, but in the future I'd like to get a new jumping saddle and then a dressage saddle and sell my current AP. I really like stubben saddles so I would like to stick with one of them. However.... if I had loads of money I'd probably look around a bit more. A few girls at the barn I ride at have very comfortable saddles (one is an antares and the other is a devoucoux)... Both of them would suit me just fine if I had the funds in order :)

I mostly use a close contact for show jumping and an ainsley for XC.

I use a Courbette Vision for all 3 phases (hoping to get a dressage saddle that fits my current competition horse soon). It's got a very forward flap and is really designed for taller riders but strangely fits a 5'2" me very well

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

I have the Collegiate Diploma which is a nice saddle, but it doesn't fit me or my horse right. Soooo at some point I'll have to replace it :/ If I was loaded, I would KILL for a Devoucoux Chiberta monoflap.
I also need to buy a dressage saddle. *sigh*

Well, I was going to get a Collegiate Diploma Convertible, but instead, luck fell my way and I have been given an amazing opportunity with a fabulous saddle that I have fallen in love with.
