What do you ride in?

So im doing some research on saddles recently and It got me thinking...

What do you all ride in?

What do you wish you rode in?

What has been your favorite that you have ever ridden in?

In terms of brand, style etc.

I ride in a devoucoux, however Im really liking the CWD's lately. My favorite has been an Antares that my friend had, very very comfortable.

I have spent too much time in saddles that hindered my position instead of aiding it, and in saddles that were too small for me - it was when I sat in my now new current saddle, the Marcel Toulouse Legano.

The moment I sat in that saddle at the tack shop, it instantly put my feet directly under me and balanced me nicely. When I ride in it, I don't have to struggle to solidify my leg under me, and it puts me in a wonderful position for jumping.

I am in love with it. It doesn't matter what brand, model or make you are in - so long as it aids you and helps you improve instead of hinder you and hold you back, then you're in a good saddle.

my dream saddle is the Antares Jumping saddle. But it cost more than I paid for my horse. Haha!
So for my money, the Toulouse Annice is awesome!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

I am currently dressage saddle shopping, but I have my baby...my Pessoa jump saddle. Never ever getting rid of it, puts me in the best position, fits all the horses I have had, maybe a shim or two or thicker pad but nothing drastic! Love it! Got it almost 5 years ago and still looks new!!

Westen I have a circle y which is great but I sold my super super old Tex tan/Hereford saddle a couple years ago that I absolutely loved. Ride like a dream but it didn't fit my horse and I had to sell it to buy one that did fit.

English I ride in my HDR which overall is really nice but O feel like it makes me crooked at a trot? Might be me, might be the saddle.

My two favorites are my Ran-Ten trail saddle and my Billy Royal West Coast Reiner.

Both are extremely comfortable and well made... The Ran-Ten is very light weight and easy on my four-legged buddy during long trail rides and the Billy Royal sits low and close to his back, giving me excellent feel and connection.

I pretty well use the Ran-Ten for trails and the Billy Royal in the arena. I really like 'em both....

Stuben 19", it's the first saddle I've ever been able to find that fits me. I am pretty loyal to a brand that caters to more than short people.

I just ride in a Wintec dressage saddle, its far from "the best" saddle but I'm not "the best" rider. I like dressage saddles the most out of English saddles, but for my next horse I'm going to buy a halfbreed stock saddle for a bit more security on trails and such, I've been looking around at a few but I guess it will just come down to what fits my horse. I've seen many saddles I like, but it can be so hard to find a saddle in your price range that fits both the rider and the horse, in the end my dream saddle kind of becomes just one that fits.
