collegiate saddles

Looking for your thoughts on the Collegiate brand saddles. I've never owned or ridden in one. Stateline has a deal on the Dignitary AP for 699, which is about 300 less than other sites. I want to give it a try but thought I'd check to see what others think of both this brand and this particular saddle. I appreciate any thoughts you have!

I have a Collegiate Dressage saddle that I bought about 15yrs ago. The quality was great and it felt broken in the first time I rode it. I love it and will probably not ever sell it.

I adore them. I find it to be a brand that consistently fits my Arab, so they tend to run a little bit more narrow.

I used to borrow a Collegiate jumping saddle and loved it so much that I sought out a Collegiate Dressage saddle to purchase for my mare. I ended up finding one 20 years old and paid $650 for it (retails for twice that) and in flawless condition. It's served me great for the last 5 years, I even jump in it!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

I got Collegiate A/P 2 years back. Very comfortable seat. Been used for trail rides, lessons, and some low jumping. I was on and off thinking about selling it and getting something more expensive. Today I had a saddle fitter, who said don't sell it, because it's a very good fit for the paint and decent fit for the qh (she's asymmetric). She also didn't believe it has a medium tree (looks more like medium-wide) even though that's what the price tag said.
