Anyone know anything about Prestige saddles?

Hi again. Since I am looking for a new saddle, you guys are going to get real sick of me asking about different brands. The problem is, where I live people don't really know that much about many brands of saddles. They know Pessoa, HDR, etc. I was wondering if anyone here owns or knows someone who owns a Prestige saddle. I believe they are made in Italy but that's all I know about them. Any info is greatly appreciated.

We use to use one on our mare, it was very comfortable for my mom, but for me it was way too wide and hard for me to ride in. The saddle it self was very nice, the leather stayed nice for the year that we had it. Sorry, that can't have been very helpful, but I hated the saddle.

I know a few people who have them and honestly I'm not that impressed. They were ok, but for the price I'd much rather have a used Antares or Devoucoux.

I agree, I have two Beval saddles now, we use a Butet on my gelding and a Gladstone on my mare. I like both a lot more than the Prestige. Antares and Devoucoux are also awesome saddles, and you could get a used one in great condition for the same price.

I would love to get a Butet, but I'd be saving up for a looong time. Same with a Devoucoux. I really like both brands a lot. Sounds like I should nix the Prestige and keep looking. Thanks.

Have you tried looking at used saddles? I got my Butet for 1200 (it's a 2003 saddle) not too long ago, it's old, but in very nice condition. Though, they are something like 4000 new.

I use to have an Ashland that I loved too, though I'm not sure about the price of them.

You can definitely find good deals around, especially on ebay! I got an Antares that was barely broken in for $2400 and a Delgrange that hadn't even been oiled for $1600! Both of them start off around $4,000 (the antares was the full calfskin option so it was more). Like Supermane said, you can find a used Butet around that price as well if you look around. All of those are much less then a full priced Prestige.
