Beval Gladstone/Salem? Toulouse Lucia II?
Does anyone have either of these saddles? Pros, cons, would you recommend it? I've looked into Bates, Toulouse, Pessoa, Collegiate, and a few others, but just recently started researching Bevals. I've heard that they're made in Argentina; does this affect the quality?
Ugh, saddle shopping is so frustrating. Our local tack store only carries Toulouse and Stubben, so anything else I have to have shipped here to try. I'm considering a Pessoa Gen X, Pessoa Legacy, Bates Caprilli CC, Toulouse Lucia II, and Bevals. Reviews on any of these would be appreciated!
