What is it you're looking for people to tell you?

All of the well made brands have close contact models. It's merely a matter of personal preference which brand you purchase.

You need to find one that's fits the horse, too. CC trees tend to be quite flat and if your horse has a concave back profile many won't be suitable. Panels tend to be foam or fibre which are non-adjustable, no good if the horse has pronounced shoulders or hollows behind them.

I think most horses in general use (ie. Used for a multitude of activities by largely non-professional riders) are better of with a flocked, conventional-panelled saddle designed for the relevant discipline, or a GP/AP if one saddle is to be used for a number of different jobs.

If you're stuck on CCs, the best plan (if you are able) is to get to a store and sit on a number of different models to find which is most comfortable for you.

Do stay with reputable brands as jumping puts a lot of stress on the saddle. Barnsby, Passier, even Stubben is ok, Albion, Pessoa. There are others - just can't think of them at the moment.

IMO I adore Beval CC saddles. Those saddles are amazing, although they don't have as much seat padding as some other CC saddles I've seen.
Collegiate makes great saddles for a low budget, I owned the Diploma and loved it.
