Nice English Saddles

You could try looking at the saddles on this website: My beautiful online saddle and tack store.. They are Duett saddles and are very nice. They offer a generous trial period. There are also articles on the site that let you know how to fit a saddle to your horse so you get the correct size.

Thx 4 the suggestion, but they r pretty pricy! That's why I was looking for a used, hopefully! Cool site for other horsey stuff, just don't hav that much to spend on a saddle!

Look for Crosby, HDR, Collegiate, Mondega, Toulouse or even Keiffer... usually you can find them used in an affordable price range.

I hate, hate, HATED my Wintec Close Contact saddle. The seat was crazy slick & I never liked the position it put me in. Worst saddle purchase ever. The price is awesome but **** I hated the thing. I actually just bought a used Camelot off Ebay - just needing a cheap saddle & knowing I might very well get what I pay for - and like it alot. My trainer was actually quite impressed with the quality too and this is a woman who won't sit her butt in anything but County saddles LOL. The leather is decent quality, very soft & supple, but it's obviously been well broken in. I don't feel like it's forcing me in any sort of position and I personally like the fact it's not very forward. Now am I going to say it's a saddle that will last you a lifetime? I don't know yet. The one I bought has quite a few cosmetic dings & such, making me assume it's previous owner didn't put a whole lot of emphasis on care, but it's lasted through that.

I paid $300 with shipping for this saddle. That was about my max budget & it had some decent reviews when I checked. I went for it. Although if I'd found a Crosby, County, HDR, or M. Toulouse for that cheap I would have snatched them up in an instant >.> My opinion is keep an eye out for the nice brands going cheap, but if you need it NOW Camelot is not a bad saddle.

Ok! Thanks for more input, Sketchy! Do you have pictures of your camelot? That would be really helpful! At a tack/farm supply store I know, they sell saddles on consignment, and I have seen several crosbys within my price range. I will most likely purchase one of those, rode in one for a couple months and now I hate super padded saddles.
